Lots of eggs and lots of jam - what can I make?

I have a ridiculous number of eggs - we have our own hens and the new ones have just come into lay - so 5-6 eggs per day - that I need to use. We eat eggs all the time in pretty much every form.

I also have lots of jam, bramble, fig, plum, apple, quince, apricot are the main glut.

So what can I make to put these 2 together, which my fussy brats will eat. Obviously victoria sponge, but that only uses 2 eggs.

What about a Queen of Puddings? Still only 2 eggs, but might be a bit different.

I was going to say queen of puddings too! This recipe uses five eggs.

You can make a version of creme caramel using a teaspoonful of jam in the base of each dish rather than making up caramel - I do it with apricot jam which works well.

thin pancakes:
1 cup eggs (about 4)

1 cup flour
pinch of salt

Or what about a steamed jam sponge pudding with custard? That would definitely use up a fair few eggs.

Ooh, ooh, I have another one! What about a frangipane tart?

Thanks ladies - Queen of pudding is a good idea - need to get some bread crumbs though (the bread crock is empty) so not for tonight, but I love the idea of creme caramel with jam. I thnk that is todays pudding sorted out.

DH decided he didn't fancy the creme caramel idea, so I made a microwaved sponge pudding with the bramble jelly, then a proper custard to go with it. Everyone loed the sponge, but the kids don't like custard, never mind all the more for me and DH smile

Used up 5 eggs in total.

I've never tried a sweet omlette so that might be next, or maybe eggy bread with jam?

My favourite cinnamon roll recipe has 2 eggs in it. Can't help so much with the jam, sorry.

Sorry, it uses cups not weights so may be no use to you.

They look great. Cups are no problem for me.
