Not sure if that egg you’re about to crack is fresh or not? Here’s a quick way to tell before you find out the hard way and ruin that cake recipe.
- Fill a jug, pot or bowl with water and place the egg in it.
- If the egg lies on the bottom it is fresh.
- If it stands up on the bottom with one end slightly up it is not super fresh but should be ok.
- If it stands up completely or worse yet floats, that egg is far from fresh and shouldn’t be used.
