Do Cold Eggs Really Make a Difference in Baking? | The Kitchn

Hint: the answer is not really. But maybe a little bit…

After doing a blind tasting with two yellow cakes, one made with cold eggs, the other with room-temperature eggs, the panel concluded that the difference between the two cakes was negligible.

The cake made with room-temperature eggs had a slightly finer, more even crumb, but the cold-egg cake was entirely acceptable. Overall, tasters strained to detect differences between the two cakes, so it’s fine to use cold eggs in most basic cake recipes.
