On the Pinterest Scale: Banana Bars with Browned Butter Frosting

So the other day I had a whole bunch of ripe bananas, I wanted to do something more exciting then banana bread... so I do what any modern mom does, head over to PINTEREST.

I kind of have a love hate relationship with Pinterest, so many recipes and ideas, all claiming to be the absolute BEST in the whole wide world... and whose to say they are not they have one beautiful picture, and 500 repins.  Well I found a recipe pinned from one of my blogging buddies the Lolly Jane Sisters, for Banana Bars with Browned Butter Frosting that claimed to be a family favorite.  

So I thought I would try it.  The recipe is from a darling blog called Life's Simple Measures.  After reading the ingredient list and being so happy that I did not need to go to the store for anything special, I gave it a shot.

The Result

FIVE STARS, this is even more delicious than it looks!  The cake is moist and light, while the frosting is rich and sultry, it really makes the cake! 

I have never made browned butter frosting, and was a little intimidated, but it was easy, and probably (gasp) the best frosting I have ever tasted.  I am trying to figure out what other cakes it would work well with.

What are you waiting for go get the RECIPE from Life's Simple Measures, you will not regret this one! I usually do not fall in love with recipes that do not involve chocolate, but I fell head over heals for this one!
