Super Yummy Banana Bars

Okay, folks, there is NOTHING healthy about this sugar and butter-rich recipe, but it's so good you frankly won't care.

Banana Bars with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a large pan, 10x15 inches or so.
To make bars, combine:

1/2 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
8 ounces sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a separate bowl, mix:

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ones. Then, add:

2 medium ripe bananas, mashed

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool and then frost with this awesome frosting.


1 8 oz package softened cream cheese
1/2 cup softened butter
2 tsp vanilla
3 3/4 to 4 cups powdered sugar

Frost the banana bars and enjoy. Store these in the fridge if possible... it's a lot of dairy for room temperature.
