Banana Bread Bars And The Power Of Facebook Sharing

Banana Bread Bars And The Power Of Facebook Sharing

Share
Last week my wonderful sister in-law shared this recipe on her Facebook page. I shared it to my Facebook page so I could go back to it later when I had a chance to print it out. As Fall approaches i’m feeling the urge to bake, do crafts and move into winter mode. The cool thing is the last four years I lost my love for doing most things. I was so drained due to becoming anemic that I actually slept A lot! I wrote about it last June. If you want to see my whole story you can get the complete scoop here! This year I’ve felt fantastic. My old loves are returning to me. (By that I mean scrapbooking, baking, writing, ect. I only have one true love. Mr. Lawrence.)
Last weekend I baked these bad boys up. Oh my gosh they are so delicious! I’ve made banana bread for years. It’s a favorite around our house but these bars got rave reviews over and over again. Randy is requesting I make them already again soon. For variety and some added nutrition I added some freshly grated zucchini from my garden. I also added in a little cinnamon. Next time I’ll toss in a small handful of chocolate chips. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did. 
I wish I could give the original author credit but the name of who put this delicious concoction together is unknown to me.

Banana Bread Bars
1-1/2 c. sugar
1 c. sour cream
1/2 c. butter, softened
2 eggs
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. milk1. Heat oven to 375F. Grease and flour
15×10-inch jelly roll pan.
1. 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.
2. Spread batter evenly into pan. Bake 20
to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
3. 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
4. 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).
The frosting is easier to make then it sounds and it is sooooo good!
