Banana Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
This is an excellent recipe that I will forever have on hand. Made this a second time an added fresh cooked apples, nuts and minced dried apricots. Also used a cream cheese icing tip that I ALWAYS use (added 2 T. Whipping cream) after cream cheese is beaten Tillis smooth. This makes the softest, spreadable frosting ever. I shared slices with friends and everyone raves on the moist and tasty cake.
I made these for a party and everyone asked for the recipe. I actually made them ahead of time, froze them and frosted them the day of the party. Very moist, the flavor and texture were excellent and they’re not too sweet.
Very good. I make it in a 9x13 and serve as a cake. It’s become a family favorite for birthdays!
So good. I know I'm leaving this rating awfully late, but I made this up as a dessert for Christmas. And there was none left at the end of the day. So good!
Easy and delicious! Did not get 4 dozen from this recipe - maybe my family likes big servings!
I made this as written-came out perfectly! I made the bars for a church gathering, and they were a big hit. It definitely made enough to feed a crowd. The cake is moist and delicious, and the frosting scrumptious! I kept them well chilled and they were a yummy treat. VFE
Makes great banana muffins as well.
This was super easy to make and the results were a delicious and moist cake! I substituted Greek yogurt for sour cream because it was what I had on hand. I also frosted it with a maple brown butter frosting. Delicious!
This recipe is wonderful. Very moist, huge banana taste and the best cream cheese icing I’ve ever made. A keeper for sure. As mentioned they freeze well and take no time to thaw when you’re ready for dessert. I put the bars in the refrigerator after I ice them so they are easier to cut with icing on them.
