An ‘Instagram-famous’ baker has shared her easy recipe for mini cheesecakes filled with Nutella and Oreos.

Eloise Head, who built a loyal audience during the first Covid lockdown by posting videos of desserts on her viral food blog, FitWaffle Kitchen, makes the treats with four basic ingredients: butter, powdered sugar, cream cheese and thickened cream.

The self-taught London chef then seasons the mixture with a touch of chocolate hazelnut spread and crushed biscuits.

In a recent post on her popular Instagram account, which has 586,000 followers, Ms Head said the pies are “super easy to make” and pop in the freezer in just 20 minutes.

Instead of toiling over a large cheesecake, Ms. Head said she prefers bite-sized pieces in a muffin tray.

The recipe could be a welcome diversion for the 5.3 million Sydneysiders stuck in lockdown, with restrictions unlikely to be lifted before September.

Stay-at-home orders have been in effect for nearly five weeks, but New South Wales still registered 145 new cases on Monday, including 76 who were active in the community while contagious.

Trapped Australians can indulge in Mrs Head’s recipe, which requires you to start by grinding 200 grams of Oreo cookies in a food processor, then mixing the crumbs with 60 grams of melted butter.

In a separate bowl, whip 200ml of cold, thickened cream until stiff peaks form over the top.
