It was my big guy’s second birthday yesterday. I often get made fun of because I treat my dog like my offspring. He really is the center of our lives, and gets spoiled more than we will probably spoil our children when we have them!! So what better thing to do for Max’s birthday than to make him cupcakes!!
I actually made him a cake last year. We were thinking he would dive right in and just tear it apart, but that didn’t happen. He kind of just licked it, and took a couple of nibbles, but that was about it. I did forget to put the egg in, so maybe it didn’t taste too great. So this year, I decided to go with cupcakes. That way, he could eat one, and then we could save the rest for later. No full cake to throw away! I looked online for a recipe, but nothing was really catching my attention. I jotted down the random ingredients from a few different recipes, and came up with my own concoction. They turned out perfectly! They were light and soft like a cupcake should be. I don’t know how it tasted, but Max sure did eat it up!!
1 cup flour
2-4 oz. jars of baby food
6 oz. canned dog food
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
Combine all ingredients. Put in greased cupcake pan and cook at 350F for 13-15 minutes.
Cream cheese peanut butter crushed dry dog food honey I don’t have measurements – I just kind of threw everything in and stirred until it was the right consistency!
