Frosted Banana Bars

It seems I always have bananas in my kitchen.
I like to peel & eat this funny yellow fruit, as long as they are still green.
Speckled Yellow bananas . . . yuck!
My sweet half much prefers his favorite Banana Bread.
I  prefer CAKE.
It’s moist & delish!
My sweet half even ate it!
