Baking Tip: Room Temperature Eggs Are Better For Cakes

If you’re not already baking cakes with room temperature eggs, stop what you’re doing—put the cold eggs down, and read.

Room temperature eggs whisk to higher volumes and ensure that the cake rises properly when baked. It really makes a difference!

Want to make a CHOCOLATE LAYER CAKE but forgot to take the eggs out of the refrigerator? Not to worry. Simply fill a bowl with warm water and let the eggs sit for 15 minutes, and Voila!

Do you have any other tricks to lower the temperature of the eggs? Leave us a comment and let us know!

    Thanks for sharing this. From now on I’ll be more patient in waiting for me eggs to come to room temp.

    I do that ALL the time, I also put my sticks of butter over the hot air vents to make them soft quickly. As you can see, my baking is usually spontaneous and without much pre-planning

    I just never put my eggs in the fridge in the first place! we eat eggs so quickly in this house that there is no question of them going bad! Having said that, we don’t live in a hot country, so…..

    It definitely makes a huge difference.
