Recipes: Banana Squares with Vanilla Icing
These sound fantastic - just top them with a thin vanilla icing (easy - just icing sugar and milk until it creates a thin, drizzly type frosting - definitely add a nice splash of real vanilla extract to flavor it). These little banana squares would be ideal for afternoon tea or bake sales. Jazz them up by adding some chocolate chips or chopped nuts.
