RECIPE BACKSTORY
I found this recipe searching for Tiramisu online, I’ve tried it once before and the tiramisu is super delicious! It is soft and it seems like it melts in your mouth...It’s very creamy just like the name states! CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: The pure substance is white sugar (C12H22O11).The heterogenous mixtures in the ingredients are ladyfingers and the tiramisu itself after preparing it. The homogenous mixtures are the mascarpone cheese, the milk, the cocoa, the heavy cream, the vanilla and the rum (in this case rum flavored liquid). When you mix the eggs and milk and boil it, the substances are the same, just in a different form. When you put it in the fridge and let it cool, you change the temperature not the form of the substance. Those are the physical changes.The chemical changes are when you beat the heavy cream with the vanilla and since the vanilla has alcohol, the cream forms peaks because the alcohol causes a chemical change in the proteins in the cream. Another chemical change is when the cow digests the grass that it eats in order to make the milk. Submitted by: "Amber B."
