Pup Cakes! How to Make Dog Friendly Birthday Cake
Happy 10th Birthday Baxter Bear! I can't believe my baby is 70 in dog years! Where did the time go?! I wanted to make his day extra special. The highlights... a long walk at Bondi Beach in the morning, sunset chasing and fetch at the dog beach in Rose Bay (Sydney, Australia), a bath and grooming session with mama, and doggie pup-cakes! I have a peanut butter pup-cakes recipe that I used below. I'll also link to a few other recipes if peanut butter isn't your (or your dog's style). Leave a comment here or hit me up on social media and tell me what you think!
PREP TIME: 5 minutes
COOK TIME: 15 minutes
- 3/8 cup peanut butter
- 3/8 cup honey
- 1 egg + 1 egg white
- 3/8 cup applesauce
- 1.5 cup flour
- 3/4 cup oatmeal
- 1.5 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup honey
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cupcake tray and/or line with cupcake papers. Mix together all ingredients. Pour mixture into 12 spots on the cupcake pan. Bake about 15 minutes (depending on your oven). Let cool. Mix together peanut butter and honey for topping. Spread over each of the 12 cakes. Enjoy with your furry friend!
These are quite dense and peanut-buttery. Careful not to put too much extra topping on or it may be tough for your big guy to eat! Baxter was hilarious eating his! And a little tidbit... They don't have any oil in them so I didn't feel to guilty eating two of them! You shouldn't either! Enjoy! xoxo
I am someone who loves to kinda wing-it and come up with my own creations in the kitchen. I rarely... more than loosely follow recipes. Because that can be a tough task when baking, and because I wanted to make sure I only fed my Baxter Bear foods that wouldn't hurt his tummy, I did a bit of research. There are quite a few 'people foods' the ASPCA recommends you keep away from your furry friends. That list includes grapes, raisins, milk, dairy, avocado, alcohol, macadamia nuts, walnuts, pecans, chocolate, coffee, caffeine, citrus, coconut, coconut oil, xylitol, yeast dough, raw/uncooked meat, eggs, bones, salt, onions, garlic, chives. Read why here. You may also want to check with your vet before giving your animal any 'people food' including this recipe.
