This pupcakes recipe is fairly straightforward, and it should only take 15 to 30 minutes to prepare them. To get started, assemble the following ingredients: 1½ cups of King Arthur all-purpose flour, rolled oats, baking powder, baking soda, applesauce, water, vegetable oil, two tablespoons of honey, two eggs, one apple (minced) and one cup of grated Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar. The Brown-Eyed Baker lists the recipe on her site, and she highlights all the particulars. However, keep in mind that the original recipe calls for a cream cheese frosting—if your doggie happens to be on the smaller side, than a pupcake covered in frosting might be a bit too heavy for their systems.
We hope you enjoyed our pupcake recipe. Interested in trying another one? This particular recipe calls for the use of Greek yogurt and peanut butter frosting—we’re confident that your dog will love the pupcakes.
