I had all my ingredients out, coming to room temperature.
I assembled, baked and tasted.
Then I cleaned up and found that one of six eggs had rolled behind the flour and sugar canisters.
The eggs are large farm raised from down the street so there's some difference in size.
But the cake is really good, even if slighted an egg.
So...how much 'cheating' dare we do on baking recipes calling for x number of eggs?
