how many chicken eggs in a duck egg?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Just got a duck egg today. Making brownies, which call for 2 (chicken implied) eggs. Would one duck egg work? (it is big...)

If the egg is quite large then that sounds correct to me but I'm not much of a baker.

That sounds about right.  What I do is use two duck eggs (I have runners, eggs the size of jumbo chicken eggs) in place of one chicken egg and 1/3 cup of oil in my corn bread.  Comes out nice and moist.

I'd go for it if I were you.

With my runner eggs, I typically do a 1 for 1. Unless Ally gives me a monster egg. Cadbury seems to lay xl or l eggs and Ally lays xl/jumbo to gigantic now and then.

with the runner eggs I do 1x1 also.  my chickens are laying xxl eggs, and my rouens have laid eggs larger than that, so it might be 1x2.  or maybe 2x3.
I think in general an egg is considered 1/4 cup liquid volume, so you could measure one of your duck eggs and see what it comes out to.
