    What would YOU do with the dozen egg YOLKS you don't use for this cake???

    This cake looks really yummy BUT all those leftover egg yolks?? Yikes! I can't just throw them away. lol! Think I'll use a MIX instead of from scratch as mentioned in comments. Hey ! NO FAT... and most EVERYBODY likes lemon.....

    Pudding?? Seems I remember you need egg yolks for pudding. As you might guess, I don't cook!
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Go to food.com ... you can enter an ingredient in the search field and get recipes for egg yolks.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I've made Lemon Meringue Cake before ... delicious!!!!!!!!!!!

    There's also a Golden Cake recipe for egg yolks.

    Or ... if skip making the angel cake from scratch and use a box mix!
    Problem solved!

    I would make noodles,dry them and then freeze them. All it takes is flour, egg yolks and salt.

    You could mix them with whole eggs for omelettes, scrambled eggs, stratas etc.

    Check out this site .... it's a great resource for anything egg!

    I used their recipe search and just put in egg yolks ... and got 4 recipes

    Use them with some sausage (brown before mixing it with the eggs) and some green chiles and make a delicious egg casserole. Just a thought!!

    Scramble and feed them to the dog. My pug loves 'em. Not all 12 at once, though!

    I have a grandson who only likes egg whites. When I fry up one for an egg sandwich for him, I add the extra yolk to his sister's sunny side up egg. Since double yolk eggs are so few and far between, she is delighted! More yolk for her to sop up with her toast! Can't do this with 12 extra yolks, tho. I think there are some kolacke cookie recipes that use only egg yolks.

    pudding in microwave

    if you are making pudding just use the microwave and if things get thick use a wire whisk to smooth the pudding out. works great, no double boiler and cooks really fast.

    How about a sponge cake. When my mom would make an angel food cake, she would also make the sponge cake with the egg yolks. I liked the sponge cake better than the angelfood cake.
