Hurricane Irene is bearing down on us here in New England, and like many others I found myself facing probably imminent power outage with a fridge full of food, including a full carton of eggs. We had bacon and eggs for breakfast, which left me with 8 to bake away. After thoroughly reviewing the cookbooks for what would best use up what I have, I settled on:
Brownies (3 eggs, 1 stick of butter):
Lime bundt cake with coconut glaze (4 eggs, 2 1/2 sticks of butter, 1/4 cup milk):
I still have one egg. That'll be breakfast, assuming we haven't lost power before then.
