Tip: Always bring eggs to room temperature before baking. Fresh-from-the-fridge eggs do not disperse as fully into batters and dough as slightly warmed eggs do. To bring eggs to room temperature, simply place them in a bowl of warm—not hot—water for 5 to 10 minutes before adding them to the mixing bowl.
