Directions

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease and flour 10 x 15 jelly roll pan or line with parchment paper. Beat first four ingredients until creamy. Blend in bananas and vanilla for one minute. Add dry ingredients and blend for one minute. Stir in nuts and spread in pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Cool slightly until warm but not hot and frost with Browned Butter Frosting. For the Browned Butter Frosting: Heat utter in saucepan over medium heat past the melting point until it is boiling and a delicate brown.
