This recipe was given to me in a small cookbook written by "4 Chicks Catering." They are a group of four women at our church who cook and feed all of the Vacation Bible School workers during the six weeks leading up to VBS each summer. They are awesome! Thanks, 4 Chicks!
Ingredients: 1.5 cups sugar 1 cup sour cream 1/2 cup butter (softened) 2 eggs 1.5 cups banana 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 cup nuts
In a large bowl, cream sugar, sour cream, butter, and eggs for one minute. Add the bananas and vanilla, and mix for another minute. Add the flour, soda, and nuts. Mix for another minute. Do not overmix. Pour into pan (I use a 9x13 baking dish). Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool slightly.
Mix cream cheese and vanilla with beaters. Add the powdered sugar slowly and mix well. Frost the banana bars and serve.
Living in small town Oklahoma, I am married to the sweetest man you will ever meet. We have five young children, so I would now consider myself a professional juggler. I'm a wannabe crafter, cook, baker, and gardener. Some might call me crunchy. I'm okay with it.
