BANANA BREAD BARS
1 1/2 c
1 3/4 c
mashed ripe bananas (3-4 bananas)
all purpose flour
chopped walnuts (optional)
BROWN BUTTER FROSTING
1 1/2 tsp
11. Heat oven to 375F. Grease and flour 15x10-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.
22. Spread batter evenly into pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
33. 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 immediately.
44. 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).
