Baking with duck eggs????

crystalsprings, Jul 18, 11:32pm
My hens aren't laying atm but my ducks have just started to. I have never used duck eggs before so was wondering if anyone could give me some advice please?? Can I just use them in place of hens eggs in recipes like chocolate cake?? Also does it matter that they are fertile eggs?? (I am collecting them the day they are laid)
T.I.A :)

they can be used as for duck eggs but add a little more flour with your baking to counteract the size of your eggs by the way they are also great for sponges and the whites are good for pav's too

Never made a sponge in my life bengals but guess I will have to give it a go now. Thanks guys :)

Duck eggs taste the same but are bigger and the whites are, um, stronger? Takes a lot more beating........but just fine. Great.

The only time i made sponges that were perfect was when I used duck eggs, they came out nice and fluffy and yellow.
