So so rich and moist. Absolutely delicious. I made this as I would my pumpkin bars but used banana's instead of canned pumpkin. I used Larinda's trick to ripen my banana's in the oven for 1 hour. Worked perfect. Thanks Larinda. Just to warn you, this is a very rich and sweet cake. Small pieces will go far.

How to Make Banana Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  2. In a mixer beat together the butter and sugars. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Mix in the vanilla and mashed bananas.
  3. Mix in half of the flour mixture, then the sour cream, then the other half of the flour mixture.
  4. Spread batter evenly in a greased 10x15 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting. I was being lazy and bought store brand frosting but feel free to make your own.
