RECIPE BACKSTORY
My mom found this recipe a few years ago, and when our family is all together on the weekend, she makes them for breakfast. They’re called popovers because they sort of blow up in the oven, and “pop over” the pan. The homogeneous mixtures are the whole milk, unsalted butter and the flour. The heterogeneous mixtures are the eggs. Salt is the only pure substance (NaCl). Some signs that there are chemical changes occur are when the popovers change color in the ovens, and when the liquid mixture solidifies. Some physical changes are when the flour, eggs, salt, and milk mix together, the batter turns yellow. Submitted by: "Marina V."
