This recipe is very, very good! The bars were easy and quick to put together and turned out kinda fudgy and sweet. Mmmm, yummy! :) The centres were almost custard like and the crust nicely browned. The bananas gave the cake a sweet and fruity aroma that everyone enjoyed. The vanilla flavour went great with the bananas.
I used no sugar at all in this recipe as my bananas were very ripe and that woked out nicely. I also subbed part applesauce for the margarine and yogurt for the sour cream as thats what I had on hand.
I had to bake my bars about 15 minutes longer than stated, but that might have been due to my changes.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a real keeper with us, Chef TJ #13!
