Looking for another way to use up those brown bananas? Think soft and yummy. Think Cream Cheese Frosting. Think no more. I've had this recipe for years, but only just made it a few months ago. Oh, what I was missing out on!
Frosted Banana Bars
1/2 cup softened butter
2 cups sugar
3 mashed ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt (1/2 tsp...ish)
Cream butter and sugar, add eggs, bananas and vanilla. Mix in the dry ingredients. Pour into greased 1/2 sheet pan (you can use a large cookie sheet or a jelly roll pan. i like the sheet pan best) Bake @ 350 for 25-28 minutes. Cool
1/3 cup softened butter
1 8 oz. package softened cream cheese
4 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
Cream butter and cream cheese. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix well.
Spread over cooled bars.
:: Kitchen Note ::
These bars taste absolutely divine straight out of the freezer. Sounds strange, but don't doubt.
