The banana bread bars are moist, dense, and full of delicious banana flavor. That frosting though….. The frosting is what seals the deal. The brown butter frosting is rich, buttery, sweet, and creamy. I could eat it for days if my waistline would let me. It is freakin’ AWESOME!!! (Like lick the bowl good.)
I really can’t help myself from eating bar after bar when I make a batch. I purposely make these when I am bringing a dessert for a big group. That way I can only steal one or two. My friends are always asking for the recipe so I thought I better get this recipe up to share. Maybe one of them will make a batch for me? Yes?
To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:
Banana Bread Bars:
1-1/2 c. sugar
1 c. sour cream
1/2 c. butter, softened
1-3/4 (3 or 4) ripe bananas, mashed
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. chopped walnuts (optional)
Brown Butter Frosting:
1/2 c. butter
4 c. powdered sugar
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tbsp. milk
- Heat oven to 375F. Grease and flour
15×10-inch jelly roll pan. For the bars, in
a large bowl, beat together sugar, sour
cream, butter, and eggs until creamy.
Blend in bananas and vanilla extract. Add
flour, baking soda, salt, and blend for 1
minute. Stir in walnuts.
- Spread batter evenly into pan. Bake 20
to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
- Meanwhile, for frosting, heat butter in
a large saucepan over medium heat until
boiling. Let the butter turn a delicate
brown and remove from heat
- Add powdered sugar, vanilla extract
and milk. Whisk together until smooth (it
should be thicker than a glaze but thinner
than frosting). Using a spatula, spread
the brown butter frosting over the warm
bars (the frosting will be easier to spread
while the bars are still warm)
