You're making bread and the recipe calls for room temperature eggs. Your eggs, however, still sit in the cool confines of your refrigerator. Don't panic. You can warm them to room temperature quickly. Just place the eggs in a bowl, cover them with hot tap water and let them sit for 3 to 5 minutes.
There are a couple of reasons why recipes call for room temperature eggs. Warmer eggs tend to produce more volume when whipped, which is essential for many cakes. In yeast mixtures, such as bread or waffles, the eggs need to be warmed so they don't cool down the temperture-sensitive yeast.
