Eggs are one of the most versatile ingredients to experiment with. They are the star of many breakfast dishes and also play a supporting role in some of our most loved desserts. But sometimes a whole egg just won't do.
All keen bakers would know that an interesting characteristic of eggs is that you can use egg whites and the yolks in very different ways in many recipes. While egg whites add a light and fluffy texture to delicate desserts like macaroons and meringues, egg yolks are often used as a binding agent.
