Most of us know the importance of buying local and organic, so we don’t want to preach about this. A good egg will give you better baking results, and really fresh eggs can lend lightness to your cakes.
By whipping some air into the mix, your eggs bring a slight lift to your bake in a soufflé fashion. Unhappy chickens will produce sorry eggs and make sad cakes. Please don’t keep your eggs in the fridge; if you do, get them out the day before you use them.
