Why I Love This Recipe

My family and I always make soft banana bread / cake and they are amazing and something that I can’t live without. This recipe came from a friend of our family. CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: The pure substances are baking soda (NaHCO3), salt (NaCl), and sugar (C12H22O11). The ingredients that are homogeneous mixtures are all-purpose flour and butter. The fully mixed batter is also a homogeneous mixture. The heterogeneous mixtures are the the batter before it is mixed, and the bread after it is finished baking. The butter warming up after it is taken out of the refrigerator and the bread heating up in the oven are physical changes. The puffing up of the bread and the change in color on the bottom of the bread as it bakes, both indicate that chemical changes are taking place.
