London baker Eloise Head has wowed the internet with her simple recipe for this Lotus Biscoff cake, which is made with three ingredients

Ms Head makes the cake by melting 400 grams of Biscoff in the microwave, then mixes it with one and a half teaspoons of baking powder until combined.

She cracks two eggs on top and whisks until the mixture has thickened.

Then she simply pours the batter into a seven-inch cake tin and smooths it out evenly to ensure it reaches the edge.

The cake should be baked at 160 degrees Celsius for about 30 minutes.

Ms Head said you will know it's done when you stick a toothpick into the centre and it comes out clean.
