Can I use large eggs instead of medium?

I want to make a cake today but the recipe I was going to use says 4 medium eggs but I only have large.

Do I still put 4 in or do I need to use 3 instead?

I would use 3- but you might need a bit more liquid at the end.

Rule of thumb is that all the ingredients weigh the same. So if you are using 4oz of flour, you need 4oz of eggs. Therefore if you weigh the eggs (still in the shells!) you can work it out.

Does that make sense? smile

Yes it does make sense. smile
