Baking/dessert recipe to use 7 egg yolks

antoniab, Mar 21, 9:20pm
Darling daughter pulled tray of eggs off the dresser this morning, I rescued 7 yolks. Any ideas? I know I could make pasta but it's the one dough I hate making, would prefer a sweet recipe

Honey parfait (Hugh Fearneley-Whittingstall)

6 egg yolks, lightly whisked
300ml whole milk
200g runny honey, plus a bit extra for serving
1 vanilla pod
440ml double cream, plus a little extra for serving

In a heatproof bowl over a pan of almost simmering water, stir together
the egg yolks, milk and honey. Split the vanilla pod lengthways and scrape
most of the seeds into the custard mixture; drop the pod into the custard,
too. Stir the custard until it's quite thick and coats the back of a
wooden spoon - take it as far as you dare without it curdling. Remove from
stove, strain and whip until cold, light and fluffy.

In a separate bowl, whip the cream to stiff peaks. Pour the custard over
the cream, folding it in gently with a spatula until the mixture is smooth
(be careful not to knock the air out of it). Pour into a lidded, plastic
container, and freeze for about five hours. Remove from the freezer about
10-15 minutes before serving, so it softens slightly, then scoop into
glasses or slice and place on plates, perhaps with a few dollops of
whipped cream and a further drizzle of honey alongside. Serve with honey
brandy snaps to scoop it up.

I use this recipe for egg yolks when making a pav.

GOLD CAKE (using egg yolks only)

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.
