How to make a “Pup Cake”
Hi everyone! It’s been awhile and I wanted to kick off with a new look to the site, the results of my survey and most important…Jake and Maggie’s 2nd birthday!!! The pups turned 2 years old Saturday, June 8th and we celebrated with a homemade “Pup Cake”, new Happy Birthday Scarves from Chewy.com, and extra special attention and lots of kisses and hugs!
Thank you for all of your feedback and constructive criticism on my survey. I appreciate all of it. You want to see more posts and I’ve made a promise to send a post every day so look for them in your email. I will continue to talk about animal health and well being, make sure I give you more pictures of the dogs, create more posts on dog treats and DIY’s, give product reviews, include more of my personal recipes, and give updates on “What I’m Loving”. Most of you said the blog is informative and interesting and a “needs improvement”. That I will most definitely work on and try to give everyone what they are looking for.
I found this recipe on Pinterest from the Pretty Little Pastimes blog. Her recipe calls for cupcakes but I baked a cake and doubled the recipe.
I had gone to Sugarcreek, OH with my friend, Carolyn, and had a great time (more on that in another blog) and found the paw print form at the Amish Flea Market. Our eyes lit up when we found it and I said…PERFECT!!! LOL! You can bake in this form up to 350 degrees. I washed it by hand and put it away for another time! Honestly, this recipe was so good that while I was making it, I tried it a few times myself.
Ingredients: (remember, if you are making a bigger cake, don’t forget to double this recipe)
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 cup shredded carrots
- 1 cup whole wheat flour (preferred) or white flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine the egg, peanut butter, oil, vanilla, and honey. Blend well. Stir in the carrots and mix thoroughly. Sift flour and baking soda together and fold into batter.
Fill 6 lined cupcake molds 3/4 of the way full with the batter. Bake for 20 minutes (35-40 minutes if making one full cake) or until cooked through. Remove from the oven and let the pupcakes cool completely before frosting. My cake only took 20 minutes and it was done. I let cool before putting on the plate.
You can add whatever topping (a topping your pup can eat) and I chose peanut butter to keep it simple. I wasn’t sure how the dogs would react to it digestive wise. Maggie loved it but Jake wasn’t as impressed and all was good in the bowl department. LOL!
Check out last year’s birthday HERE and HERE! I can’t believe my monsters are 2 years old already!!! They have given us so much love over the past 2 years and we wouldn’t know what to do without them. Check out my post HERE on how dogs show their love. Hope you enjoyed this post!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. I wrote this post because I have two sweet labs who love to lick me but I call it “giving kisses"! As I type this, Jake is laying next to me giving me kisses on my leg. In the middle of the night, I will...
Happy “Friday Treats Friday”! When I was writing Monday’s post "Can Dog's Eat Honey? (HERE), I was thinking I would create an apple pie recipe similar to the one (HERE) only loaded with apples but decided to put a twist on it. And the winner is…. Puppy Apple Crisp!...
