Question: What does adding an extra egg to quick bread batter do? Do I need to add any additional leavening when I do this? Can I add 2 extra eggs and have it rise / bake properly?
I make a lot of quick breads. Sometimes a batter is VERY thick and I wonder about adding an extra egg. For instance, my pumpkin bread batter was so thick one time because the pumpkin was not as moist...so I added one extra egg (recipe was for 2 - 9x5x3 pans and contains 4 eggs normally). Seemed to rise slightly more than usual and tasted great, but this is the only time I have done this.
Thanks to anyone that answers.
