I will never make regular banana bread again! These were so dang good (tweaked from

¼ cup butter, softened
¾ cups granulated sugar
1 egg
½ cup sour cream
½ tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
½ tsp baking soda
dash of salt
2 mashed ripe bananas

Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease a 9x13 pan. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the sour cream and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl; stir into the batter. Finally, mix in the mashed banana. Spread evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow bars to cool completely before frosting.

Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
½ cup powdered sugar
dash of salt
½ tsp vanilla
¾ cups heavy whipping cream

In a large bowl combine cream cheese, sugar, salt and vanilla. Beat until light and fluffy. Set aside. In another medium bowl, beat whipped cream until stiff peaks form. Fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture and frost banana bars. Yum!
