I altered the WASC recipe with a lemon mix, and lemon extract (would have preferred to use zest, but its what I have on hand). I wasn't paying attention and put EIGHT eggs in, when I should have put six. Will this be a disaster? It is a test cake that if turns out well, I'll use this weekend and freeze tonight.

If its awful, I'll start over.

 

The batter did taste a bit eggy, but I have never made a lemon cake before, so I'm not positive the flavor is off. Any knowledge?

Trust me, a lemon cake should NEVER taste eggy. The lemon flavor should be very evident. But then I live in the Caribbean so I pretty much have zest year round.Sometimes I may use an extra egg but I've never used 2. However the size of the egg would have some bearing on the taste. I suggest you try again with the 6 eggs and see which you prefer.It's all a matter of taste after all.
