Banana Nut Cake Bars

Standard

If there is one dessert I really enjoy, it would be a soft banana cake. The only problem I always encounter is having to either wait patiently for those darn bananas to ripen or having to keep myself from eating the bananas I am trying to save for banana bread. Luckily I had some ripe bananas and could not pass up the chance of some banana nut cake bars. My recipe makes for a 9 x 13 pan but if you cut the recipe in half you could make a 9 x 9. You will just have to adjust the temperature.

Ingredients:

1 1/3 Cup sugar

1 Cup Light Sour Cream

2 eggs

1/4 Cup unsalted butter, room temperature

5 small bananas ( you want about 1 1/2 cups), mashed

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 Cups flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 – 1 Cup chopped nuts (I like walnuts)

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line 9 x 13 pan with aluminum foil and cooking spray.

In a large bowl, by hand, mix sugar, sour cream, eggs, and butter until well blended.

Bake for 25-35 minutes. Top will be brown and toothpick should come out clean.

 

ENJOY!

I have the passion to bake and love trying new recipes! I work at a school for children with disabilities as a manager of a cafe. This cafe allows the students learn the ability to work with the public and in the near future I am going to be able to bake with the students and let them learn about the love and passion there is to baking. :) I prefer baking over cooking although I do love to cook as well. I hardly ever repeat a recipe. I love my family, dogs, friends, and job. One day I will have my own bakery and I can not wait. Until then I am going to continue baking my little heart out.
