Banana Bread Pup Cakes

Jun 18, 2020 | Pets, Treat Recipes

Happy “Friday Treats Friday” everyone!!!!  I really enjoyed putting together Jake and Maggie’s birthday posts this week.  I loved planning their party and seeing the dogs run around the yard with smiles on their faces.  If you haven’t viewed the posts yet, you can find them (HERE) and (HERE).  You can’t have a puppy party without a doggie cake.  I almost ordered one but then told myself….you run a doggie blog…make one!  So I came up with these “pup cakes” that worked out perfectly and made enough to fill every slot on the fire hydrant holder.  I will say these cakes are a very dense patty of goodness and do not rise into a fluffy ball of goodness but the dogs loved them.  They are packed full of bananas which Jake and Maggie love.  I chose to ice the cakes with organic peanut butter and top them off with oats for the sprinkles.
 
My technique for icing the cakes was a little different as you can see.  I’ve been reading a ton of food recipes and food blogs and noticed that the pictures that have been catching my eye are more of a messy look.  The pictures are vibrant but not perfect and so I thought I’d give it a try with this recipe.  Did I accomplish a messy look?  LOL!  Don’t be afraid to tell me!  If you try these, enjoy and let me know how they turned out for you.  And as always, lab tested, doggie approved!  Enjoy!
