A Dog with a Blog

Friday, August 16, 2013

Dogs can blog too & nothing makes their tummys' rumble like the Beef n Bacon Pupcakes! If you are like me my golden is my child, so naturally I had to celebrate his first birthday. Complete with swimming, 14 other pups, and lots of slobber, the only thing missing was the birthday cake. I found this simple & cheap recipe on pinterest and it was absolutely perfect for the four legged furballs.

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 jar of beef baby food (or any smelly flavor that your pup enjoys)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup bacon bits
Directions:
  1. Stir flour and baking powder together in a mixing bowl.
  2. Cream together the butter, oil, baby food and eggs.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients with the wet mix, and then stir in the bacon bits.
  4. Pour into a line cupcake tin 
  5. If desired, sprinkle a light layer of bacon bits on top as a frosting substitute.
  6. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for approximately 35-40 minutes, or until the center of the cake springs back when lightly poked. Oven times may vary.

We took the extra step and made frosting as well, super easy 1 tup of whipped cream blended with 1 jar of peanut butter! (Actually we ate a bunch of the frosting, too. It was so YUMMY) 



The recipe makes 12 cupcakes and whole birthday party was a complete success. Even if its not a special occasion who doesn't love a cupcake. WOOF
