Eggs 101

I was about to make a strawberry cake (Duncan Hines, don’t get excited people) when I realized my eggs went out on February 14th… Since it’s my cheat day on my diet, I really wanted to make this cake and I didn’t want to trek all the way to the store to get more eggs (even though the store is only about two miles away, that’s beside the point). So I googled and found this nifty tip I thought I’d share…. How to tell if an egg is bad: put it in water – if it stays at the bottom of the bowl or cup, it’s good. If it stays at the bottom and tilts a little, it’s still good but should only be used for baking. And if it floats, throw it out! I’ve attached a nice shot of my egg behaving itself and lying on the bottom of the measuring cup, like a good little egg. So I threw that sucker and two of it’s brothers in my cake mix and now I’m patiently waiting for it to finish baking….. Mmmmmm, eggs.
