What to do with egg yolks from Pav!

I make a caramel sauce to go on top of pav. You then put cream on top of that.

IMO, one of the nicest uses for the egg yolks is to make a lemon (or orange) curd and then top the pavlova with that curd - the citrus with the pavlova makes a very special dessert.:-))

Edited to add.

Having not tried a pavlova with a caramel sauce topping and being an absolute caramel fan, I can well imagine your topping option would be another delicious option - do you have a special caramel sauce recipe that includes the egg yolks, and if so, would you please share it!:-))

Just made the Creme Brulee recipe on this site. First time I've ever made Creme Brulee and it looks good. I haven't tasted my one yet but 2 of my sons just wolfed theirs down and said it was really nice. That's a good sign.
Thanks for posting the link.

I should add that the yolks were left over from the icing sugar pav I made for the first time yesterday. Unfortunately my oven must run hot because the pav was overcooked and had a slight burnt taste. I will try again with a lower oven temp.

I had one go a bit brown but was ok, I have an older oven again now , they tend to be bigger, than the newer models.

It took me ages to find a good cake recipe using only egg yolks but finally did it. It last for ages in the fridge and cuts really well.
This recipe is for 5 egg yolks but it tastes really good. I made mine in a loaf tin.
Here is a recipe for a yolk only pound cake. It's adapted from my mom's 40s-era Betty
Crocker. It's called Loaf O'Gold--and it is very gold in appearance. It's a good use of extra
yolks or a good way to get some extra whites :)
1/2 cup butter
1 c. sugar
5 egg yolks
1 tsp. vanilla
1 and 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 c. milk
Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. add yolks one at a time, then vanilla, beat until very light and mousse-like in texture.
Wisk together dry ingredients. Add to batter, alternating with milk.
Pour into a greased and floured loaf pan. Bake at 180 degrees for 60-70 minutes.

egg yolk custard

put into a bowl
6 egg yolks, 1/3 cup of cornflour, whisk in 1 cup of milk.
set aside.
Put in a saucepan
1 & 1/4 cups of whole milk, 2 tsp vanilla
sprinkle over the milk 2/3 cup of sugar
Do not stir, put on stove and watch for it to simmer.
Add a little hot milk into the cold, while whisking, maybe half, then pour it back into the saucepan, return to the heat. I turned my element down by 1/4.
stir with a wooden spoon until it is nice and thick.
This custard sets real fast, as soon as I noticed it thickening I removed it from the stove, kept whisking while it finished cooking.
I have covered it with cling film to stop it skinning over

Ice cream - my problem has been the other way - what to do with the egg whites when the family doesnt like pav or meragines.

Thats a good idea, lots you could then do with the sponge or presumably freeze it.

KEY LIME PIE

For 8 servings:

200g digestive biscuits

75g butter

3 limes

395g can sweetened condensed milk

3 egg yolks

250ml-300ml cream

1/4 cup icing sugar

Preheat the oven to 160C.

Break biscuits into chunks, put them in a food processor and process into fine crumbs. Melt the butter, stir or process it into the crumbs.

Press the crumbs into the bottom and sides of a 23cm pie plate or flan tin to form a crust.

Wipe out the processor, then finely grate the zest from the limes and squeeze the juice. Reserve the zest of one lime to garnish the pie. Add the remaining juice and zest to the processor along with condensed milk and egg yolks. Process to combine.

Carefully pour the filling into the crumb crust. Place the pie in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the filling has just set. Remove the pie from the oven and cool on a rack, then cover loosely and refrigerate for 2 1/2 hours.

Just before serving, combine the cream and icing sugar in a large bowl. Whip until the cream will just hold its shape. Spread the cream over the pie filling, sprinkle with the reserved lime zest and serve

Banana & Pecan Biscoti
Ingredients:
1 banana, mashed
1/3 cup pecans, chopped
2 egg yolks
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preparation:
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees .
2. Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
3. Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add the sugar and salt, and stir together.
4. In another bowl, combine the banana, egg, oil and vanilla.
5. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ones along with pecans; stir well together.
6. Flour a board and turn the dough out onto it. Form two 8-inch logs. Put onto the cookie sheet and pat down to 1/2 inch thickness.
7. Bake at 180 degrees for about 23 minutes; turn the oven down to 150 degrees.
8. Remove the logs from the cookie sheet and cool for about 10 minutes, then cut them into 1/2 inch slices and bake for 15 minutes at 250 degrees F.
9. Turn the biscotti over and bake for another 15 minutes (when you get them out, the biscotti will still be soft; they will harden as they cool).
