Sugar does not necessarily cook an egg, it just takes away the potential salmonella from the egg. Here's a simplified explanation of how this works: Eggs contain proteins and enzymes, some of which can be dangerous when the eggs are undercooked or not cooked at all. Enzymes that are functional have sites called "active sites". However, when a change occurs, the enzymes become denatured (they can't function anymore). Some examples of these changes are heat (this is why a cooked egg is perfectly fine to eat), the adding of an extremely acidic or basic solution to the mixture, and in this case, sugar. When the sugar is mixed with the egg, it will denature the enzymes and therefore destroy the potential dangers of raw eggs - the eggs are not cooked, but they are fine to eat.

The only way to cook an egg properly is to use a heat source. You can use a paper to start the fire, like when camping, but it wont cook an egg by itself.

sugar water reacts with egg because the water and sugar combine to make the egg rout

User Avatar

True. Covering the pan will trap the hot steam in the pan causing it to cook the top of the egg. Also, if you have oil in the pan, the hot oil will pop up on the egg and help cook it.

Raw egg whites contain very little sugar. There are 0.2 grams of sugar in one raw egg white, and only about 17 calories.

Yes, even though an egg will not float in plain water, it will float in sugar water. When you add sugar to the water this makes it have a higher density than the egg.

I have an egg that weighs approximately 6 ounces and would like to hard boil, how long do I cook this egg?

User Avatar

You can spin it. If it wobbles it is raw. If not, it is hard-boiled. You can spin the egg on a counter top. If the egg spens fast then its hard cook, but if the egg spins slow it's still raw.
