Ingredients

Bars:

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 ¾ cups mashed ripe bananas

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (Optional)

Frosting:

  • ½ cup butter

  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar

  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 15x10-inch jelly roll pan.

  2. 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.

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

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

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