Max & Ginger Pupcakes are human like cupcakes that are safe for your dogs! No toxic chemicals. Nothing but the best for our dogs!

Max & Ginger Pupcakes

Here’s a great recipe for your furkids! My dogs Max and Ginger go absolutely nuts for these homemade dog pupcakes (aka cupcakes).

What I really like about making my own homemade dog treats is that you know exactly what’s going into them versus those Chinese made treats with unknown ingredients and chemicals. Homemade dog treats give us piece of mind!

Originally I was going to make them some cookies but I remembered that my dogs go nuts when they see me eating cupcakes so I figured why not, let’s make them some pupcakes!

The frosting is optional as well as the small milk bone I added to each pupcake. I just figured that if I am going to spoil my kids, I might as well really spoil them!

As you see in the pictures, I used a mini muffin pan to make these doggie treats. My dogs are very small so a mini cupcake is perfect for them. If you have a larger dog then a regular size muffin pan will be fine.

You will need the following ingredients to make this Pupcakes recipe (see recipe card for quantities): All Purpose Flour, Baking Powder, Eggs, Greek Yogurt, Unsweetened Applesauce, Creamy Peanut Butter, Apples, Honey, Heavy Cream and Mini Dog Biscuits.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, eggs, yogurt, and applesauce until well combined.
  3. Stir in peanut butter, honey, and grated apple and mix well.
  4. Add 1/4 cup of batter to the muffin pan if using a regular-size pan or a little over a tablespoon for a mini muffin pan.
  5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let the cupcakes cool in the pan before transferring them to a wire rack.
  6. While the cupcakes cool, beat the whipping cream until light and fluffy. Pipe the whipped cream onto cooled cupcakes and optionally top each with a Mini Dog Biscuit.

    These cupcakes are ideal for your fur babies. I have a small dog so only gave her a little at a time. She loved them. This is a recipe I will keep.
    Excellent.
