Ingredients

FOR THE BANANA CAKE:

  • ½ cup butter softened (1 stick)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups ripe bananas mashed, 3 medium
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch Salt

FOR THE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING:

  • ½ cup butter softened (1 stick)
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 15” x 10” x 1” pan (jelly roll pan) with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In an electric mixer with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl by hand, beat butter and sugar and pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, banana, and vanilla and mix well.
  • Meanwhile, combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Add to banana mixture and mix until uniformly combined.
  • Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean with a few crumbs attached. Cool completely, at least 30 minutes.
  • To prepare the frosting, combine remaining butter and cream cheese in a standing mixer with the paddle attachment. Or, combine in a large bowl and beat by hand.
  • Gradually add powdered sugar and vanilla and beat well. Spread evenly over cooled bars.
