Frosted Banana Bars

Frosted Banana Bars
adapted from

I found this great recipe from a food blog that has the greatest recipes! I wish they had a Cafe Zupa's down here, now i'll just have to search one out on my next trip to Utah. Can't wait to try this one it looks wonderful!


1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed ripe banana

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9×13 inch pan.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the sour cream and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the wet batter. Finally, mix in the mashed banana. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow the bars to cool completely before frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 lb. powdered sugar

In a bowl, combine the butter and cream cheese. Beat until smooth. Slowly add the powdered sugar and mix until completely smooth.

  1. So I just moved to Utah and love Zupas, do they have good banana bars at Zupas? Typically. banana desserts from restaurants just don't cut it. It would be great to know if Zupas will fill that void! Thanks
