I had four bananas just waiting for a recipe, but I didn't want to make banana bread again--I wanted something different. This recipe is incredible; very moist with really good banana flavor. I cut the sugar down to 1 3/4 cup, and might try even less next time, since the ripe bananas are so sweet on their own. I was in a hurry, so I frosted them with storebought vanilla frosting & added some chopped walnuts on top; although I think these would also be very good even without frosting. The bars would be awesome served while still warm, with some vanilla ice cream -- mmmmmmmm. I will make this recipe again! -M
These were incredible!!! I made them, flipped 'em over to let them cool, and part of the bottom tore off. These were more like a cake, or a banana bread. I tried them before and after frosting, and think that I liked them better before (but I don't like very sweet anyways). This is my new banana bread of choice!! Great recipe, thanks!
This was very good. The frosting was excellent. I will make this again when the banans start getting too ripe.
After reading some of the reviews I decided to cut the sugar back to 1 1/2 cups. On a whim, I tossed in 2 additional tablespoons of brown sugar at the very end. I frosted them with a chocolate glaze made from 1 cup of chocolate chips (half milk and half dark chocolate), 4 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of corn syrup. These have a beautiful texture and are super delicious! I'll be saving this recipe and making it again.
Excellent! I had to use a 9x13 pan and just baked it a little longer. The texture is perfect. As other reviewers have said, it is pretty sweet so I just used half the frosting and will use the other half for something else. It's too tasty to toss. Thanks for sharing the keeper recipe, we really enjoyed it.
Made this today to use up some really ripe bananas. It is delish! I used vanilla buttercream as my hubby thinks he does not like cream cheese icing (he does)!
Mapleleaf, you didn't follow the recipe and didn't have enough moisture. Of course they are going to be dry. I have used this recipe for years and it comes out perfect every time.
Delicious! I have made these twice since the amount of frosting was alot. Thanks!
Made it before work this am- very simple quick recipe- rave reviews from coworkers. Frosting is delish!!!
