Most chocolate pudding recipes I find are egg free.

However a chocolate pudding that uses eggs yolks is essentially a chocolate custard. If you used whole eggs in a custard it would not set the same as when made the usual way with just yolks. Some custards do have beaten egg white added separately after they set.

Note: there is a British recipe for steamed "chocolate pudding" that uses whole eggs, but its texture is more like a cake than pudding.

No, it the recipe calls for 3 egg yolks you cannot substitute that for whole eggs. Some recipes, like custard, only require egg yolks, as the egg whites will curdle the mixture.

No, whole eggs are not a good substitute for egg yolks when baking. A good substitute for egg yolks is olive oil.

The basic ingredients of mayonnaise are vinegar, egg yolks and oil. Salt and mustard are added for flavor. Some recipes use whole eggs instead of only yolks.

Yes, just find a recipe that requires whole eggs rather than just the yolks

No egg yolks can't replace whole eggs. You're recipe will not turn out like you think it will.

Sift the cornstarch and cocoa powder together. Add water and mix thoroughly. Stir the cornstarch mixture into the chocolate mixture. Whisk in the whole eggs and the extra egg yolks. Cook until thickened (about 5 minutes). Add the vanilla extract. Pour into a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and chill. Cut the chocolate cake into 3 squares. Layer half the pieces of chocolate cake in a large trifle or other large glass bowl, cutting the pieces to fit. Arrange half of the banana slices around the sides of the bowl and on top of the cake. Spread half the chocolate pudding over the cake and around the sides. Repeat the process with another layer of cake, more banana slices and the rest of the chocolate pudding. Whip the whipping cream and slather over the top of the topmost layer of chocolate pudding. Sprinkle with slivered almonds and garnish with cherry halves. Chill. Joel Ehrlich

4 whole eggs substitute for 8 egg whites. This is because the egg yolks are much of the quantity, and the resulting texture will be different with the yolks.


yes they can handle the enzymes in the yolk . just dont give it chocolate

If a recipe calls for whole eggs - it means the yolk & the white (albumen). Some recipes ask for you to just use the yolks.

Dark orange yolks means the chicken it came was likely a free range chicken and ate grass instead of corn. The more yellow the yolk, the more corn the chicken ate. Dark orange yolks are perfectly fine to eat.

German chocolate cake is traditionally frosted with a coconut-pecan icing. The icing is made from egg yolks, evaporated milk, and, of course, coconut and pecan.

yolks - like egg yolks

If you've followed the recipe using egg whites instead of whole eggs, the difference should be that you have a white cake instead of a yellow cake. When using a recipe calling for whole eggs and you wish to use just the whites, add one more egg than the recipe calls for to make up for the liquid of the yolks not used.

No. Egg custard, or custard is made with egg yolks, milk and sugar. It is a pudding, in german or american cuisines. It can be baked into pies, added to cakes or pastries or baked and served as is.

Yes! The yolks have nutrition and energy for you.

Actually, a classic white cake is made with egg whites only - no yolks. Using the whole egg allows the yolks to color the cake mix a yellow color.

The color of an egg's yolk is determined by the chicken's diet. A diet higher in leafy plants contains more carotenoids, and will produce darker colored yolks. Yolks can run a whole a spectrum of color from pale, pale yellow to rich orange. If the laying hen was on a "pale" food diet and then switched to foraging, pasturing, or a higher plant diet, the yolks of her eggs would darken.

Changes need to be made when adding pudding. I only use Duncan Hines cake mixes. Here is the "formula" for the proper quantities. Dark Chocolate - 1/2 c. oil, 1 1/4 c. water, 4 Jumbo eggs, 1 small box instant dark chocolate fudge pudding White (won't look white, so call it vanilla) 1/4 c. oil, 1 c. water, 3 Jumbo eggs (yolks must be added, too), 1 small box instant vanilla pudding, 1 t. vanilla Other flavors (not ones with butter in the mix), 1/3 c. oil, 1 c. water, 4 Jumbo eggs, 1 small box instant pudding (either of the same flavor or vanilla) Make sure you mix the ingredients for 2 minutes at medium speed.

No such thing exists. All eggs that chickens lay have yolks in them. Some may have double (or even triple) yolks, but not no yolks.
