Fixing Egg Smell in Baking Products – Some Easy Tips

It is not easy to always pinpoint why a cake is left with an eggy smell after baking. But some conclusions can be drawn. Here obviously the culprit is egg, but sometimes it is also how you mix the batter.

Not Beating the Eggs

One of the most common reasons for the eggy smell is the fact that eggs are not beaten enough. When this isn’t done diligently, egg protein becomes uncurled which eventually straightens them out. This makes the outcome very “eggy”.

Not Beating the Eggs

To ensure this doesn’t happen, it’s important you beat the eggs properly. An electric mixer is always recommended but if you don’t have one, use your muscle power to power on!

Overcooking the Cake

If you are overcooking your cake, that may be the cause of the eggy smell. We don’t often face this problem but know other bakers complaining of the same. As of what we know now, this most likely happens as while the cake bake, eggs release sulphur. The more you cook, the more this is released.

Overcooking the Cake

Hide the Egginess   

If you are unsure about balancing the eggy smell, use a stronger ingredient to be on the safe side. All you need to do is add a little bit of cinnamon, lemon, clove, coffee, or vanilla to your batter to balance the flavours. You can also increase the amount of essence you use.

Go Eggless   

If you are too sensitive to the eggy smell, skip them altogether. You can make a variety of eggless cakes that come out as soft and fluffy as the eggy ones. At Bakers’ Fun, we have many eggless options that we bake using protein powder and milkmaid. Whether it is the 50th Birthday Cake or the Yellow Themed Baby Shower Cake, you will find a host of options at our store.

All the cakes coming out of the Bakers’ Fun oven are not only fresh but are devoid of any eggy smell so that you can enjoy them – not once but always! So, try them today.
