Test Kitchen video tip: Warm eggs before baking

Quick baking trick: To give your eggs more volume when baking, bring them to room temperature before adding them to a recipe. The eggs will beat more quickly and easily in a batter, and taking the chill off whites before whipping will give you a loftier meringue.

To warm eggs: Set the eggs out on the counter to temper, or place them in a bowl covered with very warm water until the eggs lose their chill. If the eggs have already been shelled, place them in a bowl over a larger bowl of hot water, stirring until warmed through.
