I have a cake recipe that needs three large eggs but what do I do if I only have medium eggs?

Hi all, I recently cooked the No Fuss Fruit Tart from Kitchen (p177), but found that the base was far too dry and did not set. I was using the commonly available arrowroot biscuits in Australia (375g, as per the recipe), as an an equivalent to "digestive biscuits". Just wondering if the biscuit I was using was incorrect, or the 75g butter amount is incorrect. The filling was very nice, by the way!

I made brownies for the first time a couple of weeks ago and they came out perfectly. The top was glossy and cracked and looked just like the picture. But I have made them twice since and done exactly the same thing but they just look lumpy. They taste lovely but don't look very nice. What am I doing wrong?
