Banana Sheet Cake or Banana Bars or whatever.....


1/2 c. butter, melted
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 c. sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
3 bananas, mashed
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt

Beat butter, sugar and eggs. Add sour cream, vanilla and bananas. Mix well. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients and then incorporate into the banana mixture. Spread batter into a greased and floured sheet pan (yes, I'm talking about your big cookie sheet). Bake at 300 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

Cream Cheese Frosting
6 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/3 c. soft butter
2 c. powdered sugar

Beat all frosting ingredients together until you have creamy, dreamy frosting. 
Wait for the cake to cool completely and then spread frosting on top. And then of course you need to finish it with little chocolate sprinkles. The cake is better if you keep it cool.

Made this for a brunch today and it was so good!
