In one of her latest clips, the self-taught chef from London makes a batch of brownies in three easy steps with two eggs, 80 grams of peanut butter, 120 grams of brown sugar, 220 grams of self-raising flour and a share size bag of chocolate M&M’s.

Ms Head said the brownies are ‘perfect if you’re not keen on overly sweet bakes’, thanks to the lightly salted flavour that comes from the peanut butter.

To make the brownies, Ms Head mixes the peanut butter and eggs until smooth before adding in the sugar.

Next, she folds in the flour, kneading the mixture with her hands until it forms into a thick dough.

Finally she pours in the M&M’s before patting the dough into a lined baking tray and baking in the oven at 160 degrees Celsius for 25 minutes – it’s that simple.

Photos of the brownies have drawn delighted responses since they were shared on Sunday, with comments including ‘love these’, ‘delicious’ and ‘these look unreal’.

Others suggested substituting peanut butter for Lotus Biscoff spread for those with nut allergies.

It’s the latest of Ms Head’s clever recipes to sweep social media, following Nutella and Kinder stuffed brownies and a simple red velvet cake made in a mug.

She whips up the indulgent sponge with basic ingredients like butter, flour, sugar, vegetable oil and food colouring to give the mixture its signature ruby hue – all inside a coffee cup.

Ms Head said it’s ‘by far the quickest red velvet recipe’ she has ever shared and it’s so easy, it’s virtually impossible to mess up – even for beginners.

To make the sponge, whisk three tablespoons of milk with a half teaspoon of lemon juice in a mug.

Then add four tablespoons of flour, two tablespoons of sugar, a quarter teaspoon of baking powder, three quarters of a teaspoon of cocoa powder, one and a half tablespoons of vegetable oil and a dash of food colouring, mixing until smooth.

Add a handful of white chocolate chips – though these are optional – on top, fold in, then microwave for about 70 seconds before turning your attention to the cream cheese icing.

This can be made by mixing 40 grams of cream cheese with 15 grams of icing sugar – it’s that simple.

Spoon a generous dollop of icing over the top along with a sprinkle of icing sugar for decoration, before tucking in – that’s roughly five minutes preparation time from start to finish.

The tutorial drew hundreds of delighted responses, with many tagging their friends begging them to make the mug cake at home.

‘Need to try this,’ one woman replied.

‘Adding these to my list,’ said a second.
