A Recipe (found on

This is a great recipe for banana squares. I found it on the internet a couple years ago when I had some bananas that were at the make banana bread stage but I wanted something that was quick and easy (the actual baking takes 45-50 minutes). Anyway, I baked some today and thought maybe somebody would be interested in the recipe. I have not been able to get the soft peeks with the egg whites and it still turns out delicious. The boys love them as do I. Mark has never tried them, though.

Here it is:

2 Eggs; separated

1 ts Baking soda
1/4 c Sour milk
1/2 ts Vanilla extract

wire rack. If desired, garnish with a dollop of
whipped cream and a few banana slices.
