Just like cakes usually call for room temperature butter, they typically call for room temperature eggs, too.

And since most of us keep ours in the fridge, that can pose a problem when we’re in a baking hurry.

Well, thankfully, culinary team member and Rach’s resident baking expert, Grant Melton, has an easy fix!

"If you need room temperature eggs in a pinch," he explains, "all you have to do is put them in a bowl and cover them with warm water."

(Pro tip: Don't use *hot* water, because you don’t want to start cooking the eggs!)
