You liked the pancake. Now what to do with those yolks.


What do you do with those egg yolks??

You can FREEZE them. Yeah!!


The yolks
Ice cube trays
Ice lolly trays
A freezer bag
A permanent marker


Get yourself 1 or 2 ice cube trays or ice lolly trays and a freezer bag (each individual lolly holder holds about 2 yolks and the ice cube trays, 1 yolk). How you prepare the yolks for freezing depends on what you’ll use the yolks for. Will you use them for savory or sweet dishes. I use mine for both so I keep separate trays.

To freeze the yolks, you need to beat in about an 1/8 of a teaspoon of salt or 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of sugar (I use unrefined brown or coconut sugar) with every 4 yolks. Don’t freeze the yolks as is as they go a really funny texture. Been there ;). When done, divide into the trays and freeze. Make sure you date the freezer bag you put the trays in.

The frozen yolks should keep for about 2 months.


I use my yolks for a multitude of things. I make my own custard and ice cream. I add them to baking and I use them to make chocolate pots and spaghetti carbonara.

Carbonara recipe coming up as well as a flourless brownie each using those yolks!
