Eggs for a cake. And the size i have

Hello :)
I was going to make a cake and it says 3 eggs 59g each
O my,,,, some of my eggs are way over 80g and 90g
What to do
Take white out till im at the right weight for 3 eggs
Use 2 eggs that almost = the correct weight of 3 eggs but that means one less yoke.
OMG what to do !

Just put 3 eggs in

I'm a bit hit and miss with eggs - never worry about weight - just work on an average egg.Sometimes I put extra if I think it needs it so like lythande says - your 3 eggs will be just fine.

Yeah I just guess, most of the time I only have 6's so if a recipe has a few eggs or more I chuck in an extra to make up the difference.

I have never weighed an egg yet! 25yrs in catering, guess I just never found the need. I always just use size 7 eggs, depending what I am making, if it was a meringue etc I may be inclined to use extra eggs, but can't say I have ever really used less.
3 eggs if that's what the recipe says should be fine. Just to be nosey what are you making. I am intrigued.

I would just crack 3 eggs, beat them up and weigh up what is needed. Leftovers can be used for omelette or eggwash for scones, etc
