I have a recipe that calls for 12 large eggs but I accidentally bought jumbo eggs. Do I have to adjust the quantity of eggs that I use? How do I figure out how many of the jumbo eggs to use in order to get the equivalent of the 12 large eggs?
Please help! I don't wanna mess this one up!
I found this fun little chart which converts large eggs to measuring cup measurements and also has size substitutions:
This is so funny because I went on ask.com and looked it up just now and found the same site. I was actually signing on here to post the link in case anyone else needed it in the future! Thanks so much for looking it up for me as well. I should've done that before I posted the question...
I came across this - it may help! http://www.getcracking.ca/sizesandsubstitutes.html
I'd use 10 jumbo eggs for 12 large eggs.
A large egg weighs 50 grams without shells. So if it requires 12 large eggs you need 600 grams of eggs. You can just measure out 600 grams of jumbo eggs and stop when you get the weight you need. I buy my eggs from a farm and the eggs are never all the same size in a dozen, so that's how I measure my eggs for all of my cakes.
