I was cleaning through and organizing the photos on my phone the other night (which is another post in itself, blah) and came across the pictures from Brady's first birthday... which then made me realize I never shared the recipe for the pupcakes I made him!
These are super easy, much cheaper than a fancy little cake from a bakery, and quite tasty - Brady had two of them and then I ate the rest as muffins ;) He LOVED them and actually swallowed each of them whole. Although he does this with lots of things, socks included haha. The pupcakes were also really gentle on his stomach and didn't bother him at all, which was my biggest worry. Definitely doggy approved!
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup honey
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
Dash of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a cupcake tray with cooking spray.
Combine egg, peanut butter, applesauce, vanilla and honey in a large bowl and mix well. Stir in the carrots.
Sift together the flour and baking soda. Fold into the carrot mixture. Spoon batter into cupcake tray.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, and then move to wire rack to cool completely.
Once cool, apply 'frosting': a mixture of peanut butter and honey. Top with a Milkbone and serve to happy pup!
