I got introduced to this recipe when I was 3 years old from my Great Grandmother! Ever since I have been in love with this moist, cinnamony cake! CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: Some pure substances in this cake are baking soda (NaHCO3), sugar (C12H22O11), and salt (NaCI). Some ingredients that are heterogeneous mixtures are ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground nutmeg. Also the mixed batter is a homogeneous mixture because you can’t really see the ingredients. Some of the homogeneous mixtures are Crisco, and baking powder. Also the soup when you take it out of the can and the cake heating up in the oven are both physical changes. The cake browning on the top and rising out of the tin are both indications of chemical changes.
