I chose banana bread for this project because it was my Great Grandmother’s recipe and I want to pass it on through the family. CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: Bananas and eggs are heterogeneous mixtures. Sugar, butter, flour, and chocolate chips are homogeneous mixtures. Salt and baking soda are pure substances. A couple physical changes are mixing all the ingredients. Another would be melting the butter in the microwave. A couple chemical changes would be putting the banana bread in the oven going from a liquid to a solid. Another one would be the banana bread getting burnt in the oven at the bottom if you leave it in the oven too long. Submitted by: "Vanessa D"
