I have twelve egg yolks leftover from an angel food cake recipe. My instinct says pound cake, but it'd be nice to do something different. Any ideas?

So many egg yolks! So overwhelmed by the possibilities, but zero inspiration!

How about this Austrian lemon & poppy peed bundt cake? The recipe calls for 11 egg yolks. Super delicious! http://videoculinary.com/recipes/cakes/190-lemon-poppy-seed-cake

Fresh pasta. 2 yolks, 1 cup AP flour and 1 tbsp olive oil per person.

Whenever I have egg yolks I always make cheese straws because they are so delicious and I can't stop eating them! The pre-baked batter also freezes fairly well so you can save it some to bake later http://handfulofsunshine.com/2015/01/10/cheese-twists/

Pavlova. Click the magnifying glass at the top of the screen, type in Pavlova, and choose Recipes from the pull-own menu.

Oops! Forget Pavlova. I thought you meant egg whites.

Citrus curd was my first thought, mainly because it would go so well with the cake!

I often like to make Madeleines when I have extra egg yolks. However, they do freeze well, so you don't need to be in a hurry to use them.

If you don't want to use all of them right away, you could freeze them for later use: http://www.incredibleegg.org/egg-facts/eggcyclopedia/f/freezing-eggs

Type in "egg yolks" in the search box, Q &A (hotline) for lots of uses.
