“We all use eggs all the time so it might seem extraordinary that something as simple as choosing a Clarence Court egg over any other free range egg can make difference to your cooking and more importantly your eating.
Well I can tell you that picking Clarence Court eggs makes a huge difference: your custards with be rich and deeply coloured, your meringues will rise a mile high, your cakes and doughs will be golden in hue and for me , most important of all, your breakfast, dippy egg will be sublime.”
Anyone who has ever eaten a Clarence Court egg will know why this was such an exciting prospect – from the bowling ball-sized ostrich egg to the pretty little quail eggs they are all stunning, with fat, rich, yolks and a flavour that makes the pale, insipid budget eggs seem on a par with pus-charged phlegm.
I have been using Clarence Court eggs for some time – but only the hens and quails eggs and hadn’t actually got around to trying the duck eggs in my cakes. What a revelation! I’m not sure why I had never used them before, I had always been aware that they were supposed to result in great, prize-winning cakes – now I know why! They result in a really amazingly light sponge. Although larger than a hen’s egg, I substituted one duck egg for one hen egg and baked. The extra fat in the yolk and the extra protein in the white result in a lighter, richer cake than you will achieve with hens’ eggs.
