I used up the remainder of the Cream Cheese Frosting I made for the cinnamon rolls a few days ago. This was quick to whip together - even with my best little man "helping!"
Frosted Banana Bars
½ cup butter, softened
1 ½ cups white sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (I used four ripe bananas)
Frosting (use store-bought cream cheese frosting or make your own from the version below)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a jellyroll pan.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the sour cream and vanilla.
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl; stir into the batter.
Finally, mix in the mashed banana.
Spread evenly into the prepared pan(s). Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Allow bars to cool completely (or as long as you can stand it!) before frosting.
Cream Cheese Frosting ( from My Kitchen Cafe)
8 ounces cream cheese
½ cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups confectioner’s sugar
2-3 tablespoons milk
Combine butter and cream cheese and mix well, then add vanilla and sugar and mix again, then add milk for desired consistency.
