    Normally, I purchase regular sized eggs from the supermarket.

    Some baking recipes require extra-large eggs. If I do not have them, can I use 2 regular (medium-sized) eggs in place of 1 extra-large egg? Will the end result come out the same?

    Yes, you should be fine, one more regular egg to make up for the extra large egg is ok.

    The end result will come out the same if you just use another egg. I know with some recipes they say that if you don't have a extra large then you can substitute for two eggs.
