Renee Willoughby


2 eggs

1 cup sour cream

cup butter (1 stick)

1 c sugar

3 or 4 ripe bananas, mashed

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

teaspoon salt

cup of chopped walnuts (or pecans) optional

Brown Butter Icing

cup butter

4 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoons of vanilla extract

3 Tablespoons milk

Heat oven to 375

Grease and flour 15X10 jelly roll pan


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.

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


Heat butter in large saucepan over medium heat until boiling.

Let the butter turn a delicate brown and remove from heat immediately.

Add powdered sugar, vanilla extract and milk.

Wisk together until smooth. (it should be thinker 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)

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I recommend adding additional milk to make the icing spreadable. It is true that they must be iced
when the bars are warm. The 3 Tablespoons make it too difficult to spread as it pulls up the brownie.
