Pupcakes - food for dogs - Kids in the kitchen


My daughter Poppy (10 years old) loves baking for our crazy little papillion dog, Bilbo. She made him these "pupcakes". The recipe is reprinted with permission from SPCA Cupcake Day website. It makes quite a lot, so she visited some of the neighbourhood dogs and gave some away. She even used SPCA cupcake papers which you can buy from the SPCA store here.

Ingredients:
·  4 cups wholemeal flour
·  ¼ cup oats
·  1 teaspoon baking powder
·  1 cup dried apple pieces(you can also use fresh fruit)
·  2¾ cups water
·  ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
·  ¼ teaspoonvanilla
·  1 cage free egg,beaten slightly

Icing
 a few dog biscuits for decoration on top
1 potato cooked and mashed
low fat cream cheese

1. Preheat oven to 175°c degrees. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray.
2. Mix all wet ingredients thoroughly. Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl.
3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients slowly, scraping well to make sure no dry mixture is left.
4. Pour into muffin tins.
5. Bake for 1 ¼ hours. Insert a toothpick into the centre of a pupcake and if it comes out dry, they are ready to come out of the oven.
6. frost with low fat cream cheese mixed with mashed potato

Wait until cooled before serving one to your pup. Store leftovers in a sealed container. Makes around 12-14 pupcakes.

Makes 12 cupcakes or 24 mini-cupcakes.
