Hello,
I have a recipe for angel food cake that calls for 12 egg whites, leaving me with 12 yolks without a home. Does anyone have any recipes that I could use these up in? I'm thinking challah or brioche, maybe a custard or ice cream?

Thanks in advance.

I would go with either ice cream or creme brule.

azscoob, I've got a pretty killer vanilla ice cream recipe that doesn't use eggs, but sure send it over. I'll show you mine if you show me yours! Any tips on how not to curdle the eggs? I always have that problem.

dataz722, never even thought about creme brulee....oooo...now we're talking!

Keep 'em coming! If the angel food recipe turns out well I'll have a ton of yolks to use up.

You need to temper them. You add the hot liquid to the already beaten eggs a very little bit at a time. That is slowly raise the temp of the eggs. Adding sugar to the beaten eggs helps too.

See, I do that, but I still end up curdling. Perhaps the mixture gets too hot? Should I just strain the mixture through a sieve?

Sometimes it does just happen. If it isn't too bad then just strain it.

Are the eggs still really cold when you do it? You are either not wisking enough or fast enough, the eggs are too cold to start with, or you are adding too much at a time.

I will dig it up tonight! as for the yolks, yes you need to temper them, and loads of stirring over a double boiler, take a moment to rest and bam, they set.

I would like to see your ice cream recipe too. That is one thing that I have problems with. I have only tried a couple times though.
