    When the recipe ask for 3 eggs they usually mean large eggs. When baking a cake size does matter and can mess up the cake here is a chart I found for you to convert egg sizes for recipes.

    To substitute another size egg in your baking, check the following charts.

    Size Equivalents
    1              1            1               1         1
    2              2             2              2         3
    3              2             3              3         4
    4              3            4               5         5 
    5              4            4               6         7
    6              5            5               7         8

    No, it will just come out moister. I use jumbo eggs all of the time because I love the extra moisture and tenderness of the baked product. It also stops dryness from being an issue. Hope that helps!

    When egg size is not specified, you should assume large. 

    The differences in sizes between eggs is 1/4 of an ounce with each step up.  Since jumbo eggs are two sizes up (large => extra large => Jumbo), you will be changing the recipe by adding an additional ounce and a half or 7-1/2 ounces instead of 6 ounces.

    You may wind up with a moister batter, but it will be thicker, you may have trouble getting it to bake through and it may not have the airy quality you want.

    Jumbo sized eggs are definitely going to make the texture of your cake different, slightly spongier, but they shouldn't effect the recipe too drastically. Hope that helps! Happy baking!
