Banana Bread Bars

1 c. sugar
1 c. sour cream
2 eggs
c. butter, softened
1 c. mashed ripe bananas (3-4 bananas)
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
tsp. salt
c. chopped walnuts (optional)


Brown Butter Frosting

c. butter
4 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp. milk

Directions:
Directions:
1. Heat oven to 375 F. Grease and flour 15x10" jelly roll pan. For the bars, in a large bowl, beat together sugar, sour cream, butter, and eggs until creamy. Blend in bananas and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking soda, salt, and blend for 1 minute. Stir in walnuts.

2. Spread batter evenly into pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

3. Meanwhile, for frosting, heat butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until boiling. Let the butter turn a delicate brown and remove from heat immediately.

4. Add powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk. Whisk together until smooth (it should be thicker than a glaze but thinner than frosting). Using a spatula, spread the brown butter frosting over the warm bars (the frosting will be easier to spread while the bars are still warm).
