  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the sour cream and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter. Finally, mix in the mashed banana. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow bars to cool completely before frosting with the cream cheese frosting.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Made according to the recipe except I used a homemade cream cheese frosting. Thought they were too heavy and although edible, not to our liking.

I have never made these bars without someone asking for the recipe. Just use 2-3 lg. very ripened bananas and you will have plenty of flavor. Please don't put store bought frosting on them. Th...

My only complaint is that I can't give this recipe 6 stars! These are wun-der-ful! It's so great making a 'bar' recipe the comes out of the pan perfectly and makes a great presentation. I served...

I made this as a bundt cake just because I got mixed up with another recipe I was considering. I cooked it for 40 at 375. It was light, moist and delicious. Not too sweet either. For the record,...

These are very, very good. Like some others, I used a 9 x 13 inch pan and extended the baking time. I just kept checking them every 10 minutes or so until the toothpick came out clean. I also a...

I made these and they were very good! I used 3 large bananas (probably was more then the 1 cup called for in the recipe), substituted 1 cup of cake flour for part of the all-purpose, and cut dow...

This recipe was GREAT!! I loved it so much. Instead of sour cream, I used vanilla yogurt and it tasted wonderful. I also added walnuts into the batter. The cake was also moist and really tas...

Scrumptious! I used three bananas (about 1 1/4 C. bananas) and added about 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, then frosted with homemade cream cheese icing and topped it off with walnuts. This is definitely a k...

These were great! I, as many others stated, made my own frosting as I already had the ingredients on hand. I used 4 oz. cream cheese, 1/2 C butter, 1 t vanilla and 3 1/2 C powdered sugar. Upd...
