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.

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.

Heidi J: I love to order the "Tour of Italy" because I get to eat 3 different things.  I know it is a lot of food...but it is sooo good!  Also, I cannot eat there without getting a slice of their Black Tie Mousse mouth is watering right now! Love it!!
I emailed you with the info, Heidi.
Happy Thursday~signature
