I don’t have a puppy of my own but we had a puppy party at work recently so I decided to make it extra special by coming up with a recipe for puppy cakes.
Some research went into figuring out what ingredients were safe for dogs to eat and digest, hence why I selected items that had no sugar added and were not too fatty.
Also, make sure to double check if the dogs that you’d be serving these cakes to have any allergies, but otherwise this should be fine for most dogs. Also, puppy cakes are not meant to be a meal replacement, this is just supposed to be a delicious and yummy treat.
The best part about these puppy cakes is that they’re INSANELY easy to make. You literally just throw all the ingredients in the same bowl, mix everything together, scoop it into the tins and then bake them off. You can probably finish making these and clean everything up beginning-to-end in about 30 minutes.
All the dogs that ate these LOVED the cakes and gobbled them right up. I’ve honestly never seen a dog so excited about eating a treat before. So make these ASAP. Happy Nomming!
1 1/2 cups of organic unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon of baking soda
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1/2 cup of freshly-made organic peanut butter with no sugar added (we got ours at Whole Foods)
1 cup of milk (preferably skim)
2 jumbo organic eggs (extra large would be ok too)
1/3 cup organic honey (preferably locally made if available)
1/2 cup of safflower oil
24 small doggie treats for topping (plopping)
Preheat your oven to 350° F
Line a 12-count muffin tin with cupcake liners. Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir them until everything is fully combined.
Fill each tin to be 3/4 full with the puppy cake batter.
Gently plop each cupcake with a doggy treat. I left two with no treats for the TTF team to sample. (They’re extra bland if you’re curious what they taste like to human beings)
Bake the puppy cakes for 11 minutes. Check if they’re done using a toothpick, once the toothpick comes out clean, the puppy cakes are ready.
You can store them in a sealed container for up to 5 days.
