Banana Bars with Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

Well, mine turned out more like a cake, but regardless of the form the taste was truly scrumptious! This dessert was deceptively light; at the first bite you almost think you may not need that cold glass of milk with it but further in it reveals it's subtle richness. The frosting was probably the best cream cheese frosting I've had. If you like bananas, cream cheese or cake this will not dissapoint.

Frosted Banana Bars

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (I used three)

Preheat oven to 350. grease 10x5 inch jellyroll pan or one 9x13 pan. In a lrge bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at time, then stir in the sour cream and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl: stir into the batter. Finally, mix in the mashed banana. Spread evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
