This is a new recipe I have been making that the family goes ga ga over!
1 c butter softened
1-1/2 c sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/2 c mashed ripe banana (about 4)
2 eggs
1 8-ounce carton dairy sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c all-purpose flour

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 15x10x1-inch baking pan; set aside
2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on med. speed for 30 second. Add sugar, baking soda, and salt; beat until combined. Beat in banana, eggs, sour cream, and vanilla until combined. Beat or stir in flour until combined. Spread in prepared pan.
3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched and a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
4. Prepare Cream Cheese Frosting. Spread over top. Cut into bars. Cover and store in refrigerator. Decorate as desired with Halloween candies at Halloween time or with nuts, etc. at other times of the year.

In a large mixing bowl, beat one 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened, and 1/2 c butter, softened, with an electric mixer on medium speed until mixture is smooth. Beat in 2 cups sifted powdered sugar and 1/4 tsp. vanilla until combined. Makes about 2 cups.
