One of the questions people are always always asking me about writing a baking blog is how I manage to eat anything other than sweets 24/7. I usually try one of whatever I make, save a couple for Andy, and then give the rest away as fast as I can. These bars were no exception, and they were out of my house within an hour of photographing them. And good thing too, because these may be the most addicting, delicious things I’ve tasted in ages. (So good that I may have gone back and hit up Andy’s stash later in the day!)
It starts with the most buttery soft banana bar that is the perfect texture and flavor, (I had the over- ripe and perfect baking bananas for these.) While the freshly baked cake-like bars are still warm, they are slathered with a thick brown-butter icing, flecked with bits of nutty brown buttery goodness. The icing soaks into the warm cake, and melts just a teeny bit, and creates a truly wonderful flavor combination that I’m now obsessed with. I’ve always loved brown butter, but this unique icing is really spectacular- I’ll be using it again without a doubt!
