Peanut Butter Pupcakes

Happy Birthday Harvey 🥳

My gorgeous golden boy turns two years old today, so I’ve decided to make something a little bit different and bring you a sweet treat for your four-pawed fur babies.

Trust me, your pups are going to love these!

It wouldn’t be a birthday celebration without cake!

I’ve always LOVED dogs. We had a couple of dogs when I was little and as I got older, I dreamed of the day I could bring my own puppy home. I knew that when I did, I would spoil him rotten…and I’m pretty sure I’ve lived up to it!

These pupcakes went down an absolute treat, and it’s not surprising – they are packed full of lovely dog-friendly ingredients, including peanut butter and carrots. No funny tummies here! And just like regular cupcakes, they are so quick and easy to make.

They do look good enough to eat, and they are human-friendly too (if you feel like having a quick taste), but I would avoid the gravy bones!

INGREDIENTS

Makes 6

Pupcakes:

100g wholemeal flour
1tsp baking powder
50g rolled oats
75g carrot
2tbsp peanut butter
100ml vegetable oil
2 eggs
50g Greek yogurt
2tbsp honey

Dog-friendly frosting:

200g cream cheese
2tbsp peanut butter

6 small gravy bones

METHOD

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 160°C (320°F, gas mark 4) and place six cupcake cases into a muffin tin. Trim the tops and bottoms off your carrots and grate. You can do this by hand or using a food processor.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter, eggs, vegetable oil, yogurt and honey. Add the flour and baking powder and mix thoroughly. Fold in the grated carrot.
  3. Divide the mixture between the six cupcake cases and bake for 25 minutes. Remove the pupcakes from the oven and leave to cool in their tin for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
  4. While the cupcakes are cooling, make the dog-friendly frosting. Add the peanut butter and cream cheese to a bowl and mix well using a whisk or hand-held mixer.
  5. Once the pupcakes have cooled completely, add the frosting to a piping bag fitted with your chosen nozzle and pipe a small blob onto each cake. Top with a gravy bone treat.
