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
