Banana Blondies with Brown Butter Frosting

Banana Blondies with Brown Butter Frosting

Banana blondies with brown butter frosting are chewy, soft, and easy to make. The blondies have a banana bread taste which pairs so well with the brown butter frosting.

What I love most about this recipe, besides that they taste amazing, is how they use up a ripe banana. I don’t know about you but we always have some ripe bananas hanging around the house. This recipe use just one, compared to most banana muffins or bread recipes that use 3. This dessert comes together so easily and I’m sure will become your new go to for getting rid of those over ripe bananas.

I made this recipe with the help of my two young children. Lots of mashing, pouring, and mixing makes this recipe perfect to make with little helpers.

What is Brown Butter Frosting?

Just like the name sounds it is a simple frosting made up of brown butter. You get brown butter by slowly cooking the butter on the stove over medium heat until it reaches an amber colour. Cooking the butter gives it a sweet nutty flavour. If you’ve never tried it, it’s easy to do and is really an amazing flavour. After the butter is browned you simply mix in the icing sugar, vanilla, and mix till smooth.

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then scrape with a knife to level off the access. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour cause the flour to compress and getting more than the recipe calls for.

STORING THE BLONDIES

Store blondies at room temperature in an airtight container. They keep for 3 days after baking.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

How do you like your banana bread? Plain or with chocolate chips? I prefer mine plain but my kids like theirs with chocolate. Either way this banana bread recipe is perfect. I’ve been using it for years and it never fails! The secret is that it use simple ingredients.

Banana bread is so easy to make and this recipe is no different. Just five minutes of work and it’s ready to bake. I made this recipe over the holidays with my children and we ended up having to use four bananas because they kept eating the mashed bananas. It’s a great recipe to make with kids. Mine always love mashing the bananas and pouring in all the ingredients. My two year olds daughters favourite part is sprinkling the chocolate chips on top of the batter.

I hope you try this recipe and that it becomes a staple in your home as well!

How to Make Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Lining the Pan

To start preheat your oven to 350F. Grease your loaf pan and line with parchment paper. You want the paper to cover the bottom and the long edges. The paper should over hang on the long edges, this allows you to pull up the bread for easy removal.

Making the Batter

Next, in a medium sized bowl mash your bananas. You want to make sure there are no large chunks left. You do need ripe bananas for this, if the bananas are not ripe they will not mash properly and your loaf will not be sweet. After mashing set bananas aside.

In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar. I like to mix mine for a few minutes till it becomes light and fluffy. Then add in your mashed bananas and beaten egg. To beat the egg place the cracked in a small bowl and beat with a fork.

Add in the salt and baking soda and mix will till combined. Add in the flour and mix just until combined. Over mixing will cause you to have a dense bread and will not have a moist texture. Just mix until no flour streaks remain. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Add the banana bread batter to your readied loaf pan. Spread the batter out evenly using a spatula. Lastly, top the batter with some extra chocolate chips. This is optional but I think it gives the bread a beautiful look!

Bake in the oven for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the bread comes out clean. Lastly, loaf cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing it to a wire rack to cool fully.

Bake them on your own or bake them with your kids, either way I’m sure you’ll love with these Chocolate Chip Banana Bread!
