Peanut Butter Pupcake Recipe

By 2:04 PM , , ,

A little over a week ago, I blogged about Harper's second birthday

Not only did Harper turn two, but her best friend and "cousin" Lexi (my mom's Golden Retriever) also turned two. When I brought home Harper, my mom got the doggy itch and less than a week later, Lexi came home. 

And they have been getting into trouble ever since.

Because we're crazy dog people, we had another birthday party for the pups.

And what birthday party would be complete without a cake? Or, in this case, a pupcake!

Peanut Butter Pupcake
(Adapted from the Brown-eyed Baker)

1 cup rye flour
1/4 cup oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 ounces applesauce (about 1/2 cup)
1/3 cup honey
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix flour, oatmeal, and baking soda. In a separate bowl, mix the peanut butter, vegetable oil, applesauce, honey, and egg. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Lightly spray a baking round with cooking spray; pour batter into baking round and smooth.

Very thick pupcake batter

Bake for 25-30 minutes.

The cake's texture reminds me of cornbread, and the dogs loved it.

This morning, Harper was very insistent upon getting up. I thought she needed to use the restroom, but instead of going to the door to ask to go outside, she went into the kitchen and pointed out where I had the leftover pupcake stored. Rotten pup!

I'm sure your pup will enjoy the pupcake as much as the pups at our doggy birthday party!
