You probably already know that you’re supposed to let butter hit room temperature before you bake with it. But did you know the same rule applies to eggs? It’s true: Cold eggs will cause cake and bread to come out dense instead of light and airy.
To warm your eggs when they’ve just come out of the fridge, place them in a bowl of warm water for 15 minutes before they need to be cracked. Just don’t use hot water or leave the eggs on top of the oven. (Too much heat could cause the whites to start to set.) Happy baking!
