This is more like a banana cake. Very good! Can't taste the sour cream at all. I added half of cup of walnuts. I baked it in a 9x13. Baked 35 min.

These are super moist and intensely banana-y, but mine were fairly dense and took more like 50 minutes to bake...Still, they were awesome and easy to put together.

Very easy, but really just like banana bread, only baked in a jelly roll pan. I expect a bar to be firm enough to eat out of hand.

I added 1/4 cup of buttermilk with the sour cream (I didn't want to take any chances of them being dry.) I baked them 25 minutes and frosted with cream cheese frosting. My husband's response - "Now, that's what I'm talking about." We have tried several other banana bar recipes and none have been moist enough for our taste. This recipe is now going in the book. Thanks!!

These bars are very nice and moist. I used very ripe bananas, the flavor was wonderful. I will definitely add this to my favorite recipes. Thanks!

Very good, soft and very cake-like. I did as Chia did and sprinkled crushed walnuts over the batter before baking. I used a 17"X11" jelly roll pan and only baked for 20 minutes. Thanks for posting a very tasty recipe.

i don't have a jelly roll pan so i baked this in a 13x11 pyrex. i garnished the top with crushed walnuts, it took alot longer to cook, closer to 50 minutes, but this is wonderful. moist and delicious, more like a cake to me. we enjoyed this very much and it was so easy to make.
