“Banana bread bars with brown butter frosting.”

Ingredients

Bars:

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1 cup sour cream

1/2 cup butter, softened

2 eggs

1 3/4 cups mashed ripe bananas

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Frosting:

1/2 cup butter

4 cups confectioners’ sugar

3 tablespoons milk

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 15×10-inch jelly roll pan.

Beat white sugar, sour cream, 1/2 cup softened butter, and eggs in a bowl with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in bananas and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. Add flour, baking soda, and salt; mix for 1 minute. Stir walnuts into batter until evenly incorporated. Spread batter in prepared pan.

Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 27 minutes. Cool.

Melt 1/2 cup butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until bubbling and golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Whisk confectioners’ sugar, milk, and vanilla extract into melted butter until a smooth frosting consistency is reached. Spread frosting over cooled banana bars.
