Frosted Banana Squares
Hi, TCL friends! I’m excited to be here to share a recipe with you today. My name is Mique and I have a creative blog, Thirty Handmade Days. I like to share recipes, printables and unique gift ideas. Kim featured me a long time ago but it was the best day of my life! I also own the Queen Bee Market, a craft boutique based in the San Diego area. I’m a mom to three crazy kids and I just celebrated my 15th anniversary with Josh this past weekend. Woohoo!
Some of my favorite recipes come from old church cookbooks. I have quite the collection and use them almost daily. I recently posted on Instagram how I had *way too many* bananas that were overripe. People shared so many great ideas for what to do with them but I found a new recipe in one of those cookbooks that was a huge hit.
- ½ cup butter, softened
- 2 cups sugar
- 3 eggs
- 3 mashed bananas
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- dash of salt
- 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
- ¼ cup butter, softened
- 2 c. powdered sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar.
- Beat in the eggs, bananas and vanilla.
- Add flour, baking soda and salt and stir until blended.
- Pour into a greased jelly roll pan.
- Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
- For the frosting, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese and butter. Add powdered sugar and vanilla.
- Beat until smooth. Spread over cooled banana bread base. Note: Frosting can be doubled for a thicker topping.
- Place in fridge to chill. Tastes best served cold.
While I know not everyone are big fans of bananas, most people I know love cream cheese frosting. Am I right? This recipe is the perfect combination of a dense cake with a sweet topping. Mmmmmmm.. My whole family gave it two thumbs up and I know I’ll be using any overripe bananas in the future on this one.
In case you’d like to share with your friends, I created some cute banana themed tags to add to your plate of treats.
