Extra eggs...

Hi all! I accidentally put one extra egg in the dough for this bread.http://smittenkitchen.com...

Will this have some sort of disastrous outcome or won't it really be noticeable?
Thanks in advance!

I think you'll probably be fine. The dough may be stickier than normal, but just dust it with flour and proceed. Looks yummy!

Sorry not to have responded sooner. I agree with petitbleu, as long as you added a bit of extra flour so the texture felt right for kneading, it should be fine. It may be a bit eggier and richer, but that may be even better in a filled bread with lemon curd. Let us know how it turned out.

Thanks for the answer! It actually turned out really well - the texture was quite chewy, but in a buttery, delicious way. It did, however, rise A LOT while baking and ended up with a sort of elongated bubble in the middle - could that be due to the extra bit of egg white?

I don't think so, maybe more from shaping if you rolled from the center out would be my expectation. If the very center didn't get rolled over, maybe the bubble developed in a bit of a pocket that was a little different texturally because of that. Sounds like you did well all the same.
