    I HAD 3 egg customers... until my flock was decimated in December by a neighbors dog.

    So I was down to 11 and told my egg customers I couldn't sell eggs for a while.

    Well now I am getting between 6-8 eggs a day and I have about 2dz chicks in various ages.

    So I told my egg customers I was back to full output, but demand has been slow.

    So other than quiche... what do you guys like to maje that takes A LOT of eggs?

    And as an aside... why does the the whites in my quiche turn dark grey/green on day 2?

    Pound cake! This recipe is from Allrecipes.com But if you go to the index at the top, terri has an awesome recipe for pound cake too.

    Grandmother's Pound Cake


    2 cups butter
    3 cups white sugar
    6 eggs
    4 cups all-purpose flour
    2/3 cup milk

    1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 3 - 8x4 inch loaf pans, then line with parchment paper.
    2.In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Beat in the flour alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated.
    3.Pour batter evenly into prepared loaf pans. Bake in the preheated oven for 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean. After removing them from the oven, immediately loosen cake edges with a knife. Allow to cool in pans for 10 minutes, then remove from the pans. Strip off the parchment paper and cool completely on wire racks.

    Dutch apple pancakes. Uses 6 eggs and you bake it in a cast iron skillet. It puffs up the side of the pan. You cut it in wedges dust with powdered sugar and top with maple syrup. Served with bacon is awsome.

  8. Belgian waffles (I love Emeril's recipe from foodnetwork.com) and Paula Deen's chocolate truffle cake (which you can find at bakerella.com). Two of my all time favorite recipes, ones that everyone loves, and both take a good amount of eggs (especially since i double the Belgian waffle recipe when I make it)

    I made french toast this morning; I used 8 duck eggs and it made 11 slices of toast. Extras will go in the fridge/freezer for quick breakfasts this week.

    just what I was looking for. Will definitly try the pound cake.

    I currently give away about 2 dozen egges a week and make my own pasta.

    3 eggs and 250g of 00 flour = pasta for 4 .... you'll never go back to shop bought again.
