How Many Eggs are These?

My little Buffs are laying pretty well now 
but the eggs are much smaller than the basic large egg. 
You can see the two regular sized eggs in the middle.
That leaves me with the question, 
"How Many" little eggs equal "An Egg" in my recipes?
So far I've just been  guesstimating.

Maybe I'm using too many eggs?
Maybe that's why my pineapple upside down cake turned out so moist?
Or why my pumpkin bars were more like a spice cake.
Very, very good in both instances.
So, when my eggs reach "normal" size, do I add part of another?

At any rate, they are sure good deviled!

Weellll...if you like the results I say go ahead and do what you are doing and if you need to add a little more later, so be it!! :)

Beautiful eggs!

I think, if I remember right, when they call for 'an egg', they are talking about Large eggs in general.
Unless they specify a specific size.

I don't have any chickens yet (theatrical sigh), but I usually just use whatever I have when baking.
I hope to do a lot more baking when we get the kitchen finished and move into the house. :o)

Have a blessed weekend!

Keep using more eggs. That pumpkin cake was killer!

I think home grown eggs are the prettiest! I always count my eggs as 1 egg, no matter what size. It would make my brain hurt to try to figure out otherwise!

Thank you for visiting my blog. Hot dog hash sounds delicious!

I guess you could put a large regular one in a measuring cup and then see how many small ones it takes to equal. I just used to use 2 small ones and be done with it.
