The world needs to know. The sweet taste of banana bread brownies topped with a brown butter frosting.
6:00 p.m. Walk in the door. Turn the oven to 375°F. Grease a 13 x 9 inch pan.
Open the fridge pull 2 eggs out. Take one large bowl and beat eggs together with sugar, sour cream and butter until creamy.
6:05 p.m. Take banana off the counter, just one of the ones you usually grab for smoothies or snacks, and set it, still peeled and sliced, in your favorite greek yogurt and place in the fridge.
6:10 p.m. Take the remaining bananas ( I’m just kidding, you’ll need only 3) and stick them in high-speed blender with a bowl or food processor and pureé it to a cream, add egg-butter mixture, flour, baking soda, salt, vanilla extract and blend for minute more. Open your jar with chopped walnuts (“quite convenient”) and stir in about 1/2 cup. Spread batter evenly into pan. Slide the pan into the oven, set the timer for 25 minutes, clean the blender, twiddle your thumbs, take out your banana greek yogurt and go sit on the sofa and look at Pinterest.
BANANA BREAD BARS:
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup butter; softened
1 3/4 cup ripe bananas; (3-4) mashed
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup butter
4 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Brown Butter Frosting :
1/2 c. butter
4 c. powdered sugar
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
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).
