Double yolk eggs in baking

Postby mogatogs » June 11th, 2017, 4:42 pm


We get our eggs from local farm shop and the last 6 batches have all been double yolkers, how do I use them in baking please? Also duck eggs do I need to change the number of eggs or do the weighing thing, sorry to be so thick but having been unwell for a while and baking being the last thing on my agenda brain has got rather rusty :rolleyes:

I used to do the weighing thing for baking, but just recently I've been using the same number of duck eggs as I would hen eggs and found that it works just fine .

As for double yolkers - I use the same number as for single yolked eggs. You just get a slightly richer result (as with duck eggs) .

Hope you're feeling ok :hug:
