RECIPE BACKSTORY
My grandma used to make this for my mom when she was a kid. It is brown with sweetness and sour with delicious apples. Chemistry information: the fully mixed batter is a heterogeneous mixture. Also, after done baking the apple cake is a heterogeneous mixture. A chemical change is when the apple cake is done the cake rises to the top of the pan. When you take a look at the bottom of the apple cake it has browned. Physical information: When you mix everything together that is a physical change.When you cut off the skin of the apple you are changing the apple physically. Also, when you cook the apple cake it is very warm which is physically changed from the room temperature batter. Submitted by: "Katie N."
