powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
3 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

. 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.
Spread batter evenly into pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
. 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
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 recipe is amazing! When I tested the batter, it was love at first taste! It makes a large portion which is nice because I share my newest recipe finds at work. My coworkers raved about them, even though I left out the walnuts. They have since been affectionately dubbed as 'crack cakes' by one of my friends at work. Thank you!!
