Egg Sizes

I live in Africa and we have different egg sizes. Please what are the approximate weight of eggs you use in your recipes?

Thanks very much for your question.

Egg sizes is a very complex question. My recipes all use medium-sized eggs.

Most of my eggs are free-range farm eggs which I get from a friend so I have no idea of the weight of them. If they are exceptionally small I will use an extra egg (or one egg less if eggs are exceptionally large) but mostly just use what the recipe states.

The difference between a large and a medium egg is about half an ounce. Of course, if your recipe calls for 8 eggs it'll make a greater difference than if it calls for 1 egg. Here's a guide to use in making your decision:

Extra Large egg about 2.25 ounces
Large egg about 2 ounces
Medium egg about 1.75 ounces

I hope this helps.
