A video from ‘Instagram famous’ baker Eloise Head showing viewers how to make iced cinnamon scrolls in a mug has gone viral on social media.
The 26-year-old, who is the founder of FitWaffle Kitchen, an Instagram page dedicated to decadent desserts that take just a few minutes to prepare, has amassed over 24,000 likes on the clip since it was shared on Saturday.
In it, the self-taught chef from London makes the dough from two simple supermarket ingredients: Greek yoghurt and self-raising flour.
She uses butter, sugar and cinnamon powder for the filling and a mix of powdered sugar and milk for the glazed icing.
Ms Head, who shot to online stardom when a baking craze swept the globe during the first COVID lockdown, describes the scrolls as ‘soft, doughy and sweet’ – the perfect combination for pastry.

To make the dough, Ms Head mixes 50 grams of flour with 60 grams of yoghurt, kneading together until a stiff dough forms.
She places it on a floured surface and rolls it out into a roughly shaped rectangle, before mixing 10 grams of melted butter, one tablespoon of sugar and half a teaspoon of cinnamon in a cup and spreading it over the dough.
After folding the long edges into the middle, Ms Head then rolls the dough into a loose scroll and places it inside a microwavable mug.
She sprinkles more sugar and cinnamon over the top before microwaving on a high heat for one minute.

Ms Head warned it’s important not to overcook the dough as it becomes chewy.
Meanwhile, she turns her attention to the icing.
This is made by mixing three tablespoons of powdered sugar with two teaspoons of milk, stirring vigorously until a smooth paste has formed.
Ms Head finishes by drizzling icing over the scroll and serving while it’s still warm.
