    Hey guys! Not sure if this is the right place to post this question, but here it goes.

    Does anybody out there know any good duck egg pancakes recipes? You see I'm just starting to reap the benefits of an egg laying duck. She started about two weeks ago and has been giving me fresh eggs off and on since then, and while I was sitting here, two fresh eggs sitting on my desk, I started thinking about how awesome it would be to use my eggs in some kinda of recipe besides "crack egg on pan, cook, eat with toast" XD

    I would love love love any kind of input! ...again, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, I saw a recipes section but I wasn't sure if that was just for know [​IMG]

    I would just use your very favorite pancake recipe and substitute the duck eggs for the hen eggs called for in the recipe.

    You are going to be really pleased. (let me know if you don't have a pancake recipe)

    [​IMG] I don't have quite enough eggs to make a quiche just yet, though that does sound awesome [​IMG]

    ...Pirtykitty, that's just plain torture [​IMG]

    I have to say that I don't really have any set pancake recipe, I've always just looked up a random recipe on the computer and used that. ...My results have always been fairly good, but I guess I was looking for some good old country recipes [​IMG]

    Here is a recipe that I use:

    Ma Carrico's Buttermilk Pancakes

    1 cup all purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup buttermilk
    1 egg beaten
    3 tablespoons sugar
    3 tablespoons oil

    combine all ingredients; mix well pour by 1/4 cupfuls on a hot griddle sprayed with non stick vegetalbe spray over medium heat. Cook pancakes until golden and blubbles appear around edges. flip and cook other side . Makes 12-15 4 inch pancakes..

    I got this from a recipe book several years ago..

    They are great to bake with however I tried making deviled eggs with them yesterday and it was a total failure. They were so fresh the shells did not come off cleanly and my eggs turned out ugly.

    Quote:*Sigh* Hard boiled duck eggs are the one thing I can't seem to get right either. [​IMG] I always wash my eggs with a clean scrubby, wipe them with vinegar, then wipe them with an oily paper towel. They seem to last forever. I tried hard-boiling some that I had deliberately kept for over 2 months just for the purpose of hard boiled eggs. I had already known that my eggs water test completely fresh after a month in the refrigerator. The 2 month old eggs still turned out impossible to peal rendering them ugly. On the plus side the eggs are awesome in every baked good I have tried, and I do a lot of baking (food allergies). Most recipes really aren't affected by the difference between chicken and duck eggs. Also most recipes can handle more egg then they call for so the size difference isn't to much of a problem.

    Have you tried adding salt to the water when you hard boil the eggs? I do out of habit - most chefs do, I think, I was told it makes them easier to peel - and I have never noticed duck eggs being harder to peel than chicken eggs. Just harder to get that initial crack.
