How do you make an apple turnover?

Comments

What does an apple "turnover" actually mean? Is it about a change of its color???

Hi Rafaela,

Please see my response to dodedada below. I think that should help you make sense of it, but if not please don't hesitate to ask again.

Oh, I got it! Funny joke, isn't it? :)
Thank you for your explanation!

Does this joke mean, that if we want a child to be mature, he would have to be separated from his parents?

Or I can't get it?

Hello dodedada,

The joke here has to do with two similar words with different meanings: 'turnover' (a kind of cake) and 'turn over' (which here means something like 'roll'). You can ask how to make the cake ('how do you make an apple turnover?') or ask how to make an apple roll.

Does that make sense?

I am suprised to hear that "turnover" means a kind of cake. I've never heard it so far.

How do you make a men love down?
Keep him with his mother.

it's a nice joke
