Hi,

So I'm planning to make Victoria sandwich (Mary Berry's recipe). Recipe calls for 4 medium sized eggs. Would 3 large eggs do? I've only got 3 large eggs left.

There's a chart here www.incredibleegg.org/cooking-school/tips-tricks/egg-sizes-equivalents-and-substitutions/

Weight the eggs and then do the same amount of flour,sugar and butter.

For a Victoria sponge though it's easy.

Measure in oz.

2 eggs =4 oz flour / butter / sugar

3 eggs = 6 oz

And so on
