Banana Bread Brownies


The world needs to know. The sweet taste of banana bread brownies topped with a brown butter frosting.


1-1/2 c sugar

1 c sour cream

1/2 c butter

2 eggs

4 ripe bananas, mashed

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 c all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp salt

1/2 c chopped walnuts


1/2 c butter

4 c powdered sugar

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

3 Tbsp milk


1. Heat oven to 375F. Grease and flour 15×10-inch jelly roll pan. For the bars, 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.

2. Spread batter evenly into pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

3. Meanwhile, for frosting, heat butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until boiling. Let the butter turn a delicate brown and remove from heat immediately.

4. Add powdered sugar, vanilla extract and milk. Whisk together until smooth (it should be thicker 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).
