Is It Hot Enough To Fry An Egg?

On the day Metro Detroit hit a record high, WWJ’s Kathryn Larson and Zahra Huber conducted a bit of a “science” experiment.

For about two hours, in the parking lot at our studios in Southfield, an attempt was made to fry an egg. We tried on many surfaces including a white WWJ news car, a black vehicle and the sidewalk. After the first hour — we started to see signs that the eggs were congealing over.

We also attempted to make biscuits — and those appeared to bake much better. After only thirty minutes the batter began to rise, and after an hour, the one on the sidewalk began to show signs of flaking.

Witness the process:

Unfortunately, WWJ afternoon anchor Bill Stevens wouldn’t give the breakfast a taste. Ah, well.
