Banana Cake with Browned Butter Frosting

1 1/2 c sugar (or 3/4 cup of stevia)
1 c plain Greek yogurt
2 eggs
1/2 c butter, softened
4 mashed, ripe bananas
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 c chopped walnuts 
1/2 c butter
3 3/4 c powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp milk
1. Heat oven to 375F. Grease a 9X13 cake pan. Mix the first 4 ingredients until creamy. Blend in bananas and vanilla extract for 1 minute. Add dry ingredients and blend for 1 minute. Stir in walnuts.
2. Spread batter evenly into pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes. I have a convection oven, and 25 min was definitely enough.
3. Once the cake is done, let it cool for about 10 minutes. Then for the frosting, heat butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until boiling. Let the butter turn a delicate brown and remove from heat immediately.
4. Add powdered sugar, vanilla extract and milk. Whisk together until smooth (it should be thicker than a glaze but thinner than frosting). Using a spatula, spread the brown butter frosting over the warm cake. The frosting is easier to spread when the cake is still warm.
