Facebook is a popular free social networking website that allows registered users to create profiles, upload photos and video, send messages and keep in touch with friends, family and colleagues. The site is available in 37 different languages.
Originally designed for college students, Facebook was created in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg while he was enrolled at Harvard University. By 2006, anyone over the age of 13 with a valid email address could join Facebook. Today, Facebook is the World's largest social network, with more than 1 billion users Worldwide.
I will admit I like Facebook and use it often. Sometimes just to browse, see what friends or family are doing, what is new, and also recipes. I have gotten many great recipes off Facebook. Who knew??
Today, yes today, I made Banana Bread Brownies. A recipe I got from a Facebook post. (from a friend) I just happen to have three rotten (or should I say very very ripe) bananas on hand, so this is the perfect recipe for today.
|Banana Bread Brownies|
1-1/2 c. sugar
1 c. sour cream
1/2 c. butter, softened
3 or 4 ripe bananas, mashed
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. chopped walnuts (optional)
Brown Butter Frosting:
1/2 c. butter
4 c. powdered sugar
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tbsp. milk
Heat oven to 375 degrees. grease and flour 15x10 inch jelly roll pan. for the bars, in a large bowl, beat together sugar, sour cream, butter and eggs until creamy. blend in bananas and vanilla extract. add flour, baking soda, salt and blend for 1 minute. stir in walnuts.
spread batter evenly into pan. bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
meanwhile, for frosting, heat butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until boiling. let the butter turn a delicate brown and remove from heat immediately.
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 bars. (the frosting will be easier to spread while the bars are still warm.)
|enjoy the yum warm!!|
I used a 13' x 9' pan. And although the recipe calls for "sour cream", I read it as sour milk, like you add to banana bread when you make it. (to make sour milk just add a bit of vinegar to milk, let set and it will sour) It all came out good and was so delicious warm out of the oven!
So see bloglings, there are many uses for Facebook. I have found a lot of high school classmates, keep in touch with family and get to see all of my nieces and nephews children grow. And don't forget the great food!!
Do you Facebook?
Always fun to meet new friends and people from around the World.
Have a great week bloglings!!
