- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
- 2 eggs
- 4 ripe banana mashed
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- Brown Butter Frosting
- 1/2 cup salted butter
- 3- 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar more if needed
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp milk
Heat oven to 375F. Grease and flour 15x10-inch 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 minutes or until golden brown.
Meanwhile, for frosting, heat butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until boiling. Let the butter turn a light golden brown and remove from heat immediately.
Add powdered sugar, vanilla extract and milk. Whisk together until smooth (it should be thicker than a glaze but thinner than frosting). You can add more powdered sugar or milk if needed.
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).
