Browned butter cream cheese frosting is a perennial favorite, and layered on top of a banana-cashew bar, it's perfectly irresistible.

Ingredients

Bars

1
cup granulated sugar
1
cup mashed very ripe bananas (2 medium)
1/3
cup butter or margarine, softened
2
eggs
1
cup Gold Medal™ flour
1
teaspoon baking powder
1/2
teaspoon baking soda
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/2
cup chopped cashews

Frosting

1/2
cup butter (do not use margarine)
3 1/4
cups powdered sugar
1
teaspoon vanilla
1
to 3 tablespoons milk

Garnish

24
cashew halves, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9-inch pan with shortening or cooking spray. In large bowl, mix granulated sugar, bananas, 1/3 cup butter and the eggs until blended. Stir in flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt until combined. Stir in cashews; spread batter in pan. Bake 22 to 26 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 40 minutes.
  • 2 In 2-quart saucepan, heat 1/2 cup butter over medium heat, stirring constantly, until golden brown; remove from heat. Using spoon, gradually beat in powdered sugar. Stir in vanilla and the milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until frosting is smooth and desired spreading consistency. Immediately spread over cooled bars. Score into 6 rows by 4 rows, making shallow cuts in frosting. Top center of each bar with cashew half, pressing in lightly. Cut bars on scored lines.
Tips  

When making frosting, watch butter carefully to make sure it doesn’t burn.

Since browned butter frosting sets up quickly, do not make it until the bars have cooled.
