Lily, from Lily’s Lick the Bowl Cafe, decided to make some pupcakes for her dog companions when we visit for my birthday party this weekend. She wanted to make sure she and her friends have some cake to eat too. Check out the original Recipe Here.
Birthday Pupcakes | Dog Treat Recipe
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup old fashioned oats
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
2 carrots, peeled and shredded
For the Frosting
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
6 Milk-Bone biscuits, small
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 6-cup standard muffin tin with paper liners; set aside.
In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder, pumpkin, apple sauce, vegetable oil and eggs. Stir in carrots.
Scoop the batter evenly into the muffin tray. Place into oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a tester inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.
In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and peanut butter.
Use a small offset spatula or a pastry bag fitted with decorative tip #1M to frost the cupcakes, garnished with Milk-Bone, if desired.
