Top tip: eggs are a vital part of a lot of sweet dishes, with many being quick and easy desserts that only use a few ingredients. It’s important to keep in mind that while many of these dishes are easy desserts to make, eggs can still scramble when being added to hot batters and other liquids so, for the best desserts, ensure that all liquids are cooled before adding your eggs.
