For some reason I kept buying bananas. Too many bananas to eat before they got to the brown stage where I then throw them in the freezer to bake them up in, usually, some banana bread. After making a double batch of banana bread and still having 8-10 bananas still sitting in my freezer, it was time for something new. So I jumped on foodgawker.com and searched ‘banana’. Sure enough, I found some great looking baked goods, including these Banana Bars. I think it was the Cream Cheese frosting that screamed ‘bake me!’
These were delicious! I will be sure to make them overa nd over again. The original recipe calls them bars because they are thinner than a cake, but after reading a few of the comments, I was thinking they may be just a bit too thin…so I made 1 1/2 times the recipe and the bar/cake part ended up to be about 1.5 inches thick. I think if you would make the recipe as is, you would probably get a 1 inch bar….if this matters to you at all! I also suggest her recommendation of covering the bars after they cool for only 20 minutes.
