  1. I love them in homemade noodles and dumplings. They are way better than the noodles made from my chicken eggs.

  2. Hi Sara,
    I find that whenever I have any duck eggs available and am baking cakes, muffins etc. I always substitute one for one of the eggs and the batter is richer in both colour and texture and the taste is enhanced as well!
    Best Wishes

    Hi Topveg,
    Yes cake making with duck eggs is good – my blueberry muffins are tasty! Just have problems with Yorkshire puddings, not sure why but they won’t rise and you don’t want to go swimming afterwards!!!!
    Kind regards

  4. Personally I think duck eggs are the best for boiling, frying, poaching, scrambling etc etc and make the best egg mayo ever. A hen egg can’t touch it! Use them wherever you’d use a hen egg.
