Five-minute Oopsy Doops

For a quick, sweet treat, try these tasty, if ridiculously named, Oopsy Doops.


  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons whisked egg (a full egg is too much)
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter/vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • splash of vanilla or peppermint

Ensure you measure all ingredients precisely – as the amounts are so small a little bit either way will make a big difference. Add dry ingredients to a large mug and mix. Add egg and combine well. Stir in milk and butter or oil. Add chocolate chips or crushed chocolate confectionary bar. Microwave for 3 minutes on high. The trick is to let it get as big and round at the top of the mug as possible while it is cooking without letting it drop over the sides to become an oopsy doops in the microwave. Good luck!
