Small eggs in baking?

last month
last modified: last month

Seems like every recipe I read calls for large eggs. If mine are small, should I add another?

I baked a cake Saturday that called for 3 large eggs. My husband does the shopping, and most of our eggs are eaten just cooked. If small eggs are on sale, then he buys those.

I thought the result was a little drier than expected. I'd tasted the cake before when a friend made it. Wondering if I should have added an extra egg.

I'm planning to make banana bread later today. The recipe calls for 4 eggs (a two-loaf recipe). Should I use 5?
