  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • Bananas Foster:
  • ⅔ ripe bananas, sliced (about 1½ cup)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ cup brown sugar, tightly packed
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 shot of dark spiced rum (I bought one of those mini bottles from the liquor store and used the whole thing.)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. For the blondies: In a large bowl combine melted butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Whisk together until combined.
  3. In a small bowl combine dry ingredients and whisk together.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture in two parts, mixing well after each addition.
  5. Spread batter into a well-greasted 9x13 inch pan and set aside.
  6. For the bananas foster: In a skillet on medium heat, melt ¼ cup butter. Add the sugar and stir to combine. Add the sliced bananas and sprinkle with cinnamon. Stir the bananas into the butter mixture until coated. Add rum and let mixture simmer for 2 minutes.
  7. Remove from heat and let mixture thicken and cool slightly (2/3 minutes.)
  8. Using a wooden spoon or fork mash bananas until the mixture is relatively smooth with only a few chunks.
  9. With a spoon, drop banana mixture evenly over the blondie batter. Using a knife, swirl bananas foster mixture into the batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes until edges are golden.
