Master Baker March Challenge - Part IV

This was the second banana bar attempt. I tried something that is more cakey and solid. I like the way it turned out.

Frosted Banana Reese's Bars

1 1/2 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. softened shortening
2 eggs
3 ripe mashed bananas
1/3 c. milk
1 tsp. lemon juice

Mix all ingredients in bowl. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Layer Reese's Eggs on top. They will sink to the botom on their own in the oven. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes.

2 tbsp. butter
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 ripe mashed banana
2 c. powdered sugar

Cream together first 4 ingredients then gradually add sugar until smooth. Frost bars when they are cool.
