Most of us know the struggle that comes with getting into a car on a hot summer day.
Especially if you own a car with a dark-colored car, the heat can make you feel like your sliding right into a hot oven. Add 50 degrees if the interior is leather.
A meteorologist at The Weather Network wanted to see just how true this comparison was; so he decided to do a culinary experiment. We’ve all seen the classic test of frying an egg on hot concrete, but what about a full sheet of cookies?
In this video, you’ll see Scott Sutherland place a sheet with six dollops of cookie dough onto the dash of a car. Inside the car, the temperature is already a sizzling 85 degrees fahrenheit.
After a few hours, will he get his own set of freshly baked cookies, or just a big sticky mess?
Sutherland comes back to the car and finds that the cookies are crispy on the outside, but still gooey on the inside. Although this probably isn’t the best or safest way to bake cookies, as you run the risk of salmonella poisoning, it’s an interesting experiment that shows the true power of Mother Nature.
