Rylan thanks again for the links. Last night I got a white cake recipe from the first link (http://www.ices.org/newsletter/articles html). The recipe was under, Dream of a Wedding Cake it's called White Velvet Butter Cake. Have you ever tried it? I am always looking for a great, from scratch, white cake recipe. Well, I tried it today and was having a hard time figuring out the eggs part of the recipe. Just wanted to run this by someone and see what they think. The recipe calls for 41/2 large eggs. It then says that weighs 4.75oz. or 135g. Well I have a digital scale and two large eggs weighs almost that four eggs weighs doubble that. Where do you think the problem with the amount of eggs they are calling for and the weight is. Do you think I am reading this right. Help anyone?

No problem ladies/gentlemen.

Loucinda, you are so lucky. I love her work. Amazing!

Cocobean, I haven't tried the recipe. I am really not sure how to solve that. Do you think the weight could possibly just for the eggwhites since that is all you are going to use? It doesn't mention the eggyolk right?

...the recipe reads *Eggs should be at room temperature and separated. Ingredients Measure Weight Grams
4-1/2 eggs* 4 full liquid oz. 4.75 oz. 135 g.


... lower down on the recipe, in the mixing instructions it says, "divide egg mixture (?) into thirds. Gradually add to mixture, beating 20 seconds after each addition.

It doesn't say anything about just eggwhites. Or if the eggwhites are to be beaten (as sometimes they are).

Maybe that is where the problem is. Maybe it is suppose to be just egg whites?

But, the part that says, divide egg mixture into thirds,I'm not sure that just eggwhites would be called "egg mixture".

Anyway I just took out the cake that I made from it, where I actually put 4-1/2 eggs, and the bottom of the cake is pretty rubbery and the top edges are fluffy. The bottom would indicate that there was too much egg!

I don't know. I guess I was hoping for a great new recipe. Or at least hoping that someone had tried it and could tell me the problem. I guess I'll have to work on it again sometime (adjusting the eggs).

If anyone ever tries the recipe let me know what you think! Thanks!

I think you should only use eggwhites in my understanding. It does not mention the use of egg yolks.

Egg mixture = eggwhites, 1/4 cup milk and vanilla as stated in the first step. Combine and divide into thirds.

I think the problem was that you used the egg yolks and the process of making it.

Just the process of making it will change the overall outcome of the cake.

Let me know if it works if you decide to try it again.

Good luck.

Thanks Rylan, I think I will try again. I guess part of my confussion is where it says 4-1/2 large eggs but only mentions the whites (I see that now) in the mixing process. The recipe still seems confusing the way it is written.
So unlike me to get confused. icon_rolleyes.gif
