sour cream
4 oz
cream cheese softened
2
eggs
4
ripe bananas
2 tsp
vanilla
2 c

BROWN BUTTER FROSTING

1/2 c
butter
4 c
confection sugar
2 tsp
vanilla extract
2-4 Tbsp
milk
1/4 c
toasted whole pecans for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Toasted pecans in oven on a baking sheet until toasted about 10 minutes. Heat oven 375 degrees. Line 10x15 jelly roll pan or 13x9 pan with parchment paper. or butter the pans. I use parchment paper.If you use 9x13 pan the bars will be thicker like cake.
2
Blend the sugar,sour cream,cream cheese,and eggs together until smooth.
3
blend in bananas,and vanilla until incorporated.
4
add flour,baking soda,salt with spoon. Mix well!!!
add pecans and stir until blended.
5
put in to pan and bake for about 30 minutes at 375 degrees or until pick comes out clean.
6
Time to make your frosting. You can frost cake while warm. It actually works better. If frosting is thick add a bit more milk to it,
7
melt butter in sauce pan until golden brown.remove from heat. add confection sugar,vanilla and milk and stir until blended well. If frosting is thick add more milk until you get a smooth frosting.
8
now frost cake while it is warm.if you use the 9x13 pan for the cake use less of the frosting. cool and cut in to bars. I eat one while warm! LOL Enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea.
