One my kids’ all-time favorite books and shows has been Curious George. George’s personality is so mischievous and his antics are absolutely funny. This week I have been talking about raising adventurous kids. And I like that each Curious George story shows kids how to explore the world in a creative and curious way. And yay – now all NINE seasons (that’s 109 episodes) of Curious George are now streaming only on Hulu. Curious George Frosted Banana Bars and Monkey Printable.
We watch Hulu a lot at the cottage. It is THE way to stream all kinds of shows and movies. And I love that you can stream using all kinds of devices including your TV – gaming consoles, iPads and tablets, phones and more! Also, right now you can stream Hulu FREE for one month, for a limited time. Just visit Hulu to get set up and you can start streaming Curious George today.
My kids love bananas so I thought it would be fun to make a banana treat to celebrate Curious George. Here is one of our favorite recipes – Frosted Banana Bars. These bars are a great way to use ripe bananas. You can also freeze the bars to be used later. They are delicious either frosted or unfrosted.
Here’s the yummy Frosted Banana Bar Recipe:
- ½ cup butter, softened
- 2 cups cups sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 large ripe bananas, mashed (about 1½ cup)
- Buttercream Frosting (optional)
- 1 cup butter
- 1 T. vanilla
- 4-5 cups confectioner's sugar
- 3 T. milk
- Preheat oven to 350° In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in bananas.
- Spread into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake 25-23 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (do not overbake). Cool.
- For frosting, in a large bowl, beat butter,milk and vanilla until fluffy. Gradually beat in enough confectioners' sugar to achieve desired consistency. Frost bars. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 3-4 dozen.
