Cheesecake bars to brownies – these recipes earned me 5m TikTok followers

Eloise Head aka Fitwaffle, is the baker and bestselling author behind some of TikTok and Instagram's most viral recipes. She began sharing her baking videos online during lockdown and since then her social media following has skyrocketed to over 9.9 million.

Eloise admits, "I wasn't always so comfortable around food and for years I ate a very restrictive diet. While I was never treated medically or given a formal diagnosis for my disordered eating, looking back I can’t believe how badly I treated my body".

Thankfully, overtime Eloise came to the realisation that all foods are okay in moderation and she could enjoy the foods she had once restricted by making a balanced judgment which allow her to live a healthy lifestyle.

Here she shares some of her favourite recipes from her new book Baked In One – and not only do they all taste incredible, but they're all created in just one tin to save on washing up!
