Recipes that'll use up your eggs


These recipes are not mine. As far as I know they are public domain...If you see yours here and would like credit for it, or would like it removed, give me a yell...THANK YOU for the use of them.

All the recipes use chicken eggs unless other wise indicated. To substitute duck eggs: 1 duck egg = about 2 chcken eggs. If your ducks are bantams: 1 duck egg = 1 chicken egg. One must experiment to get the conversion just right.
Happy cookin !

Easy Angel Food Cake

Heres a terrific and EASY angel food cake recipe...no fat and superb as a strawberry shortcake

Preheat to 375 In a small bowl combine flour and 3/4 cup of sugar. In large bowl beat egg whites, cream of tartar, salt, vanilla, and almond extract until mixture forms soft peaks (when you lift the beaters the tips of the peaks will fold over) Gradually add the other 3/4 cup of sugar. Beat on highest speed until stiff peaks form (dont use a plastic bowl for this...metal or glass is preferable...stiff peaks will stand straight when the beaters are pulled out) Spoon the flour-sugar mixture 1/4 cup at a time over the egg whites...fold in gently just til blended. (take care not to stir or you'll lose the air and volume you've accumulated) Pour batter into an ungreased angel food cake pan. Cut through the batter gently before putting into oven to remove large air bubbles.

Bake at 375 on the lowest oven rack for 30 to 40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cracks in the top are very dry. Immediately invert cake to keep from collapsing as soon as you take it out...let it hang until completely cool. You can also make this in loaf pans...you'll need 2 ungreased 9x5 loaf pans for 25 to 30 minutes.

Bachi Stella's Round Cheese


Stir all together, cook in double boiler slowly. When it starts to curdle put in cheese cloth. Squeeze tight forming a ball and hang the cloth bag over night. (It'll drip so put a bowl under it) You'll have a nice round cheese and it's good ! Guess you can try it with store bought milk. Replace about a 1/4 cup of milk for heavy cream.

QUACK ATTACK SCONES


In a med bowl mix flour, baking powder, 2 TBSP sugar and salt. cut the butter into chunks and add to flour mixture. With fingers rub butter into flour until crumbley. In a small bowl, beat eggs with cream to blend. Set aside one TBSP. Add remaining liqued to flour mixture and toss with fork just unti moistened evenly and sticks together. Lightly toss in choc. chips & nuts. Scrape dough onto lightly floured board and turn over to coat with flour. Knead, VERY LIGHTLY and gently about six times. On a buttered, floured cookie sheet pat dough into a 1 " thick round. With a sharp, floured knife, cut round into 6 or 8 wedges. With floured thumb press hole into wide end of each wedge. Brush reserved egg mixture over top to glaze. Divide jam equally between holes in wedges. sprinkle over with reserved sugar. Bake at 375 degrees, 25 min. Serve warm with butter and good coffee.

***For breakfast, I like to delete the choc chips and add 2 tsp orange zest and 1/2 c dried, sweetened cranberries and use orange marmalade.
