Banana Bread Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup Butter (Soft)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup Mashed Bananas (Browner is better)

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 1 8oz Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 4ish Cups Powdered Sugar


1.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease bread pans.

2.) In a large bowl, cream the butter (make sure it’s soft but not melted) and sugar together until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in sour cream and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Finally, mash up bananas (I like to freeze bananas that go brown, ripe bananas don’t taste as good in this) and add to mixture.

3.) Bake for 25-30 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the center to check when it’s ready. If it comes out clean, remove your bread. Let cool.

4.) To make the frosting (it works best if you have a mixer!) mix in the cream cheese and butter until well combined and smooth. Add vanilla. Add in powdered sugar in 1/2 cup quantities at a time, blend well each time before adding the next scoop to avoid clumping. Sometimes my frosting needs a little taste testing along the way to make sure it’s where i want it or if I need to add anything more! 😉

5.) Once banana bars have cooled, generously dump (I mean coat) your top layer. Cut in desired sizes and serve!
