How To Make Egg Cake

What You Need:

  • 6 eggs ( or as many as your muffin baking tin can hold)
  • Cake mix (you can buy to your preference)
  • Foil
  • Muffin baking tin


  1. Poke a hole into the eggs, one by one using a sharp object such as a tack or straight pin. The hole should be big enough to allow you to drain both the egg white and yolk out of the shell.
  2. Drain all the contents of the egg into a bowl and then rinse the eggshells with cold water until they are clean.
  3. Soak the empty eggshells in a bowl of cold water.
  4. As the eggshells are soaked, line up your muffin baking tin with foil. You should use the foil to create little nests that will hold the eggshells into place on the baking tin.
  5. Next, coat the inside of the egg shells with oil. To do that, pour some cooking oil in the egg shells, shake it up so that the oil covers the interior of the eggshell completely and then pour out the excess oil.
  6. Place the eggshells in their little nests on the muffin baking tin.
  7. Now you need to make the batter. You can use cake mix or make your own batter from scratch if that is what you prefer. If you are using a cake mix, just follow the instructions on the box to get your batter ready.
  8. Pour the batter into a Ziploc bag once it’s ready and lock the bag up.
  9. Make a small incision on one corner of the Ziploc bag. The bag will act as your piping bag. Pour the batter from this corner into the egg shells. When pouring the batter into the eggshells bear in mind the cakes will rise during the cooking, therefore don’t fill the eggshells to the brim. Leave some room for rising.
  10. Bake your egg cakes for twelve to fourteen minutes.
  11. Remove from oven and let them cool for another 5 to 10 minutes
  12. Once out of the oven, you are likely to find that there is extra cake on the eggshells. Use a knife to get rid of excess, and with a warm damp dish cloth, wipe the outside of the eggshells clean.
  13. Now peel off the eggshells to reveal perfectly formed egg cakes. You could also serve the egg cakes with the eggshells on and give your guests a chance to enjoy the process of unveiling the egg cakes themselves.
  14. Once you remove the eggshells you can also dub some icing sugar or whipping cream over the cakes for a tastier experience. Enjoy!
