How to Safely Add Eggs to a Recipe

When adding eggs to a recipe, break them, one at a time, into a small bowl before adding to the other ingredients. This is not only an easy way to add eggs gradually but also lets you check the egg's quality first and remove any pieces of shell.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy and good Made these tonight to bring to coworkers tomorrow. They were very tasty but I made a few adjustments. I didn't have spice cake mix so I used yellow cake mix and added a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice. I used buttermilk and softened butter in my cake mix to replace water and oil (I do this for EVERY cake mix cake I make). I also made homemade cream cheese icing not from the can and I added about 1/3 of the tub of cool whip to it to make it a little lighter. I also sprinkled chopped pecans on top of caramel drizzle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I made these last night but threw them away before frosting them. The middles all sunk in even after I added 5 more minutes to the baking time. My Duncan Hines cake mix was good until August of NEXT year, every thing else was purchased within the last week. My oven temp is right on and nothing unusual happened during mixing or baking. So ????????????????????????????
