Eggs (warming for baking)

tags: | |

If a recipe calls for eggs at room temperature and you are running short on time, simply place eggs in very warm (but not hot) water for 5 to 10 minutes. Room temperature is ideal for eggs used in baking. If only we all had the forethought to take the eggs out of the fridge well in advance, we’d all be happy bakers.

If you are seperating eggs, they are easier to seperate when they are cold. After seprating put the seperate bowls in a pan of warm water, making sure not to get water into eggs.
