banana cake bar cookie

Do ya'll remember I had TONS of bananas from one of my trees last week? I fed the kids, the turtles, the lizards and even the dogs... and still had about a dozen or so left.... they became this.
I was trying to recreate a cake from a restaurant I used to work at... it was tasty, but I didn't nail it. Oh's what I used:
3 mashed ripe bananas
1/2 c milk
2 tsp vanilla
2c flour
1/2tsp baking powder
1tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 c sugar
1/4 c softened butter
Combine all the wet ingredients, then fold in the dry. Bake in a 9x13x2"pan at 350 for about 25min.... or until it looks like this......
and it springs back when you touch it in the middle...

I made up a frosting with 1/2 block cream cheese, 2c powdered sugar and a splash of milk and dash of vanilla.

It was tasty, but the one we served at the restaurant was more dense- pound-cakey. I guess I will try again with the next banana crop!
