teddy147, have you made a pavlova? If so, I suggest topping your pavlova with a citrus curd made with the egg yolks. :-))

Edited to add. For more ideas try doing a search here on the Recipes MB using egg yolks as the Keywords and Last year as the Date posted option - you'll find a number of earlier threads re the same topic. :-))

yes Ive made 2 of them, Im not keen on a eggy taste which curds seem to have, but thankyou 245sam.

Are you making trifle? If so, and you don't notice the "eggy" taste in custard, use some or all of the egg yolks in a custard for your trifle.
Maybe the reason that you find curds to have an "eggy taste" is because your recipe has insufficient juice and/or zest - an orange or lemon curd-topped pavlova (with or without cream) is IMO a taste-treat.

Nigella has a recipe on her website for a sponge cake using 8 yolks. I made it the other day and the family enjoyed it. Not light and fluffy as a sponge usually is but more cakey. It would be good to use in the base of a trifle, I thought if I ever made it again.

i make cusard (using Annabelle Langbeins recipe) - usually for the top of trifle and merginues

Three or four of them could make a batch of mayonnaise.
And the other 3 or four could make shortcake for louise slice or apple pie.

I love egg yolks! Christmas morning breakfast. Break three eggs carefully into a non stick saucepan with a very generous hunk of butter on a medium to low heat. Don't scramble them. Move them around gently with a wooden spoon as the whites begin to set. Turn down the heat to low.

Then add 4 of your yolks. When warmed, only then do you break the yolks and scramble them quickly and serve on hot brown/Vogel's toast (buttered for me - Lurpak only) whilst still very moist.

Serve with the obligatory bacon, cooked tomato and mushrooms of course.
Don't add milk or whisk up beforehand.

Repeat on Boxing Day to use up the other 4. (serves 2 people)

Creme brulee nom nom

I usually do creme brulee (use Jamie Oliver recipe which always works for me though I usually cook them longer - no eggy taste - keep the temp very low). Though Portuguese custard tarts are very yummy so sometimes do those. . Getting canele molds for Christmas so my egg yolks will be used up making canele for the next while.

hi teddy. im guessing im too late but this is my custard recipe for my trifle. its to die for

Trifle custard
1 cup of custard powder
1 cup of sugar
3 cups of milk
300ml of thickened cream
2 teaspoons of vanilla
4 egg yolks
Combine custard powder and sugar in pan and gradually stir in the milk, stir constantly over heat until mixture boils and thickens, remove from heat and stir in thickened cream, vanilla and egg yolks, cool to room temperature before using in trifle.
My hints: start mixing the milk in before it gets too hot, do not heat on high – med temp is best, when it starts to thicken take off the heat and beat it hard its firm so you need strong arms, add cream first to cool it a wee bit when eggs go in beat fast so as to not cook the egg first
