I decided to risk it and tried to make the Golden Egg recipe from Gesine Bullock-Prado’s book Confections of a Closet Master Baker (which I caved and bought, along with a couple others).
It did not go well.
Actually, it did go well until I tried to remove them from the pans. The recipe called for cooking spray, but I don’t like cooking spray because it gloms itself onto your pans and never lets go, so instead I used butter. Which did not work. At all.
The doughnuts in the background there along with one cupcake were all I was able to salvage and by that time, I was too frustrated to dunk them in butter and cinnamon sugar and just ate them as is. They were very tasty, but I imagine the cinnamon sugar makes them even better.
Very similar to these, but a little eggier and nutmeggier, too.
