Another Beautiful Day

The banana bars I mentioned yesterday turned out great. Here they are minus the icing which I put on not long after the picture was taken. Called for cream cheese icing but was out of that so just made the plain powdered sugar variety which did the job well. In a comment from Feather Duster the recipe was requested so here it is----
Frosted Banana Bars
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 1/2 c. white sugar
2 eggs
1 c. sour cream
1 t. vanilla
2 c. all purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1 c. mashed ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 10 x 15 jelly roll pan. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir in sour cream and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt, stir into batter. Finally, mix in the mashed banana. Spread evenly in prepared pan.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow bars to cool completely before frosting with cream cheese frosting. If in a hurry, use the prepared frosting. If you have the time, make your own. Either way, these are yummy. (Click to enlarge)

Carol, it is unanimous around our household, you make the best banana bars. Arielle, Leif and Garner, who had 3 of them, all gave you the bakers thumbs up. Thanks for your leftovers. I had fun together with all of the girls, I think that there were 14 in total present today. What a nice place to go and sew the day away. L.

I gave this recipe to one of my friends moms so she could make it because she likes to bake a lot!!
