59 ml is approx. 1/4 cup and as far as the eggs... from what I could find it's approx 3 eggs. I hope that helps. GL

Not the answer you're looking for, but I highly recommend getting a scale (you can get a decent one under $30) and weighing your ingredients anyway. It's MUCH more accurate than volume measurements.

From the above site:

135g egg (beaten) = 4.71 oz

Click on the Weight to Volume option from the above link, choose the ingredient you're wanting to convert and it does the rest. HTH

Thanks alot for the help I actually was thinking of investing in a scale because the pastry books I get are mostly metric measurements and it probably woun't hurt to learn the metric way but for now the convertion sites are great. icon_biggrin.gif
