It's my small baby beagle's birthday so I'm making her "cupcakes." You might be asking yourself, "dog cupcakes?" and I say, yes, dog cupcakes and yes, she is spoiled! Lots of people bake for their dogs! Thing is though, anyone could eat these, there isn't a thing in them that a person couldn't eat. I might try one, probably not, but maybe.
2 tablespoons honey
2 3/4 cups water
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 F. First, I seeded the apple and peeled the carrots. In food processor puree the apple. Shred carrot with hand shredder. In a bowl mix all wet ingredients together and add pureed apple. Mix wet ingredients thoroughly.
4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup raisins
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon nutmeg
Combine dry ingredients.
Add wet ingredients to dry and mix, scraping sides and bottom of the bowl to be sure none of the dry mixture is left. With an ice cream scoop, fill a muffin pan 3/4 full, sprayed with a nonstick spray. Bake for approximately 1 hour.
I ended up with 2 regular muffin tins and 2 mini muffin tins full.
Cinnamon Peanut Butter Frosting
In a mixer, combine the following:
16 ounces non-fat cream cheese (room temp)
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon honey
I put the frosting in a ziploc and cut off the end and piped it on.
I'm sure Dixie will be skeptical, she is kind of a picky eater for a beagle. Moose will eat anything so it should be funny to see them gobble them up! Pictures to come!!
