A fitness trainer has shared her simple method for cooking the perfect cafe-style eggs in just seconds ‘every single time’.
‘Let the steam cook on top of the eggs. I usually let it sit for about 30 seconds,’ the 33-year-old said in a TikTok video.
‘I like my eggs super runny but I hate when the egg whites aren’t cooked properly.’

Fitness trainer Kat Clark (pictured), from the Gold Coast, Queensland, has shared her simple method for cooking sunny-side-up eggs to perfection in just seconds ‘every single time’
She served the egg on a bed of cooked baby spinach and mushrooms.
‘The eggs are gooey and it’s so good,’ Kat said, adding she didn’t use any cooking oil because she has a ‘really good non-stick pan’.
Dozens were amazed with her simple trick, with many describing it as the ‘perfect hack’ because they could never cook eggs with a runny yolk right.
‘Finally. I like the gooey yellow yolk but hate the egg whites under-cooked,’ one said.
One chef said she’s worked with plenty of professional cooks in her career but she has never seen eggs being cooked this way.
She said the trick is to pour water into the frying pan around the sunny-side-up eggs, and cover with a lid

Some said the water isn’t necessary because it’s ‘fried’ eggs, not ‘poached’ eggs.
‘I do this all the time but I don’t add water. I put the lid on straight away, the egg will actually cook even quicker and you get the same result,’ one man said.
And one woman added: ‘Woah it’s almost like a poached fried egg.’
However, many pointed out the trick works well for frying sunny-side-up, with one chef saying the water helps ‘create a convection heat’.
Meanwhile, dozens of people shared their own egg cooking techniques.
‘I just flip mine and the yolk is still there. Doesn’t get hard. It’s just a matter of experience. Eggs cooked on both sides are the best,’ one wrote.
