  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • 1-1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • salt


  1. Turn the oven up to 350 F. Cream the butter and sugar in a big bowl until it's light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes, then beat in the eggs, bananas and vanilla.

  2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir that stuff into the creamed mixture just until blended.

  3. Transfer your batter to a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake the pan in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until you can stick a toothpick in and pull it out clean. Let the whole thing cool on a wire rack, then slice into bars.
