Using brown eggs for baking

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Hey,

Our chickens finally started laying eggs and we're so excited!

My hubby made some brownies with two of our brown eggs and they tasted great but were a little oily.
The same thing happened with some fudge I made.

Is this from the fresh eggs?


Thanks,
Karen

No not from the eggs at all. We use brown eggs everyday, good question though because what could be causing the oiliness??.

Thanks Al. It seems like they have less white than regular store bought white eggs and they are medium sized
instead of large.

DH is making a custard pie tonight and we'll see how it turns out. He wanted me to get on BYC earlier to ask, but I didn't have
a chance to do it until now.hmm

It has the same amount of white it's just that yours are fresh and do not spread out as much as old store eggs. As far as the size you just have to adjust when using them to cook with.

I've used nothing BUT brown eggs for years, until I got my own personal white Leghorns...but anyway, they don't taste any different and they don't make your food look or taste any different either.

One thing is for sure. The price of a dead hen is a dead pred.

Thanks for the replys, y'all.

Maybe it was something else in the recipe. The only thing I know that was different were the eggs.

I cook them for breakfast just about every morning and can't really tell much difference in the taste or
texture. They seem to stick to the bowl a little more if I scramble them, but that's about all.

It's fun going into the back yard and getting eggs every day. I even have enough to share with neighbors!

I use our brown, white, and blue/green eggs in all recipes with no difference in texture, etc. Homegrown eggs do tend to have a richer flavor, especially if the chickens are free ranged or fed greens/vegetables.

The issue may be that your eggs are medium size. The ratio of egg to other ingredients is lower than when you've used store bought size large eggs. When we have pullet eggs, I weigh them out for recipes. The standard weight of a large egg is 2 ounces. Weigh enough medium eggs to make an equivalent amount of large eggs. You may have to divide an egg to make the measurement  work out.

Brown eggs and white eggs are the same, except the color of the shell

Maybe it's just me but I've found the brown egg shells a little harder to chew while the egg tastes absolutely the same regardless of color.
