These deserve more than five stars. I cut the recipe in half and baked them in an 11x7 glass baking dish for the same time given. Otherwise, I made no changes. I like that these are actually "bars" that you can cut and eat out of hand, unlike other "banana bar" recipes here that are more like cake and require a fork and plate. The frosting is incredible...don't leave it out!! I cooked the butter for exactly 3 minutes on medium heat and it was perfectly browned. Our new official banana dessert here. Thank you:)
I am the submitter of this recipe. I think the personal recipe version has better instructions. Here's a link to it: http://allrecipes.com/personalrecipe/63791412/banana-bread-bars-with-brown-butter-frosting/detail.aspx BTW, his recipe is great without the frosting.
I used an 18 x 13 jelly roll pan and had no problems with batter spilling over the sides. I reduced the bake time to accommodate the pan size. My bananas were completely black which gave theses bars a very good banana flavor with just the right sweetness. We like nuts so I doubled the amount called for in the batter and also chopped some to top the frosting. These bars are very moist and delicious. I will definitely make these again. Thanks, Allie.
This is super yummy! But don't do what I did; use real butter in the frosting! I used margarine and it was meh, but butter would have rocked it hardcore (wished I had used butter) otherwise made exactly as stated. The bars were so moist and delicious, 5 star good!
These were so moist and delicious! Yummy goodness! Thanks AllieGeekPi!
I have made this recipe twice, with rave reviews! Of course, anything with browned butter frosting on it is ok in my book. :-) I used black walnuts from the tree in our yard (so yummy) and parchment paper in the pan to easily lift bars out to cool, before icing.
These bars were absolutely moist and delicious. I didn't make the frosting because they were so scrumptious on their own. If their was a rating for 10 stars, this would definitely rate as such.
Moist and delicious! I halved the recipe, using a 9x9" pan, and it was perfect using only 17 minutes of bake time. I had plain Greek yogurt that needed to be used, so I replaced the sour cream with that. I combined all using the method of creaming the butter and sugar, then adding the eggs, bananas, yogurt and vanilla and then the combined dry ingredients. I have never made a frosting using browned butter before. I did halve it another time because I only wanted a small amount. It seemed very thin, so I added MORE confect sugar, but this was a BIG mistake. It hardened up, like sugared-fudge. Tasted good, but not what I wanted in consistency. Anyway, this is SO good, it would be fine even without the frosting or just a dusting of confect sugar. Great recipe AllieGeekPi, and thanks!
