banana bars + winner!

march 2012 003 1

I’m sharing another favorite recipe today: banana bars! They are like soft banana bread, with a scrumptious glaze. They were brought to us by our friends, the Croshaws, in Logan, Utah when my first baby, Lauren, was born. Now, my kids love them. I make them in a sheet pan to make them stretch further.

Printable version here.

Combine :

1 ½ cups sugar

1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt

½ cup butter or margarine, softened

2 eggs.

Add & stir until well mixed:

1 ½ cups mashed very ripe bananas (abt. 2 large)

2 tsp vanilla

Sift together and add to above mixture:

2 cups flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

Spread batter in greased and floured 9X13 pan. Bake at 375° for 20-35 minutes or until light brown.

**I spread in a 10 X 15 X 1 sprayed pan, and cook at 375 degrees for 17-20 minutes or until light brown. This makes more for a big group.**

Cool, frost with glaze:

Melt ¼ cup butter or margarine in glass bowl or on stovetop in a pan.

Whisk in 2 cups powdered sugar

3 Tbs. milk

1 tsp vanilla

I’m participating in my friend Richella’s Grace at Home party today~most of my favorite recipes came from friends that brought meals when we had a baby or were moving, or going through something else. I love remembering their grace and kindness when I pull the recipes out.
