How Many Eggs ????????

Our chickens have been laying for 2 weeks now and as of today we have been presented with

44 EGGS !!!

On Friday last week as we were going away for the weekend we decided to eat up some of the eggs, so we all had 4 poached eggs on toast each - I know this sounds greedy, but the eggs were quite small, and we only had 2 slices of toast each !

Ben & I also used 2 eggs to make 2 chocolate puddings in mugs - absolutely delicious. We used Chris Evans radioshow recipe

Add 4 tbs / 45 gms self raising flour, 4 tbs / 55gms caster sugar, 2 tbs / 17gms cocoa powder and 1 egg in to a large mug :-

then mix thoroughly to a creamy consistency as below :-

Now add 3 tbs / 43 mls milk and 3 tbs / 25 mls sunflower oil (you could use a syringe for absolute accuracy !)

Mix well and add a small dash of vanilla extract and 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) but we thought essential !
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes (in a 1000 watt microwave).
The cake will rise above the top of the mug, but don't worry it’s supposed to!

Allow to cool a little, tip out onto a plate.
EAT and enjoy - this can serve two - it’s a huge portion for one! - I can vouch for that !
Serve with fresh double cream, crème fraiche or custard.

So if you have got any good recipes for using huge quantities of eggs please let me know - Thanks
