    If you have an egg that you know is a double-yolker, does it count as 2 eggs in recipes? I would assume it does, but thought I'd ask the experts! [​IMG]

    Recipes are based on using large eggs. The standard weight for a large egg is 2 oz.

    Weigh the double yoker. They vary a lot. If it's close to 4 oz, then yes, it would count as 2 large eggs.
