Bake Your Dog Some Dog Cupcakes! How to Do It Today!

Just like you indulge yourselves every now and then - your dog deserves to be spoilt too. And what better way to do that - than with dog cupcakes?!

That's right - cupcakes for dogs - or as they are more popularly known - pupcakes

I have always loved homemade food - and that goes for desserts as well. So from time to time - and especially on her birthdays - I indulge my pupper with some sweet treats. 

And do not get me wrong - my dog is as spoiled as they come - but I also know that it is my fault - so who cares?

I usually feed my dog only homemade food. I find that it is better for my dog and she is capable of adjusting to different kinds of foods - in the event that a particular ingredient is not available. So one day I decided to make my dog some desserts too - and so I scoured the internet in search of good recipes. I did come across a few for dog cupcakes - so I adapted them to suit my dog's appetite and dietary requirements.

I will be sharing with you some of my favourite recipes for dog cupcakes. Feel free to adjust the quantities of the ingredients used and change the ingredients to suit the preferences of your dog. 

I know that this is very likely - because like us humans - our dogs each have their own individual appetites, tastes and preferences. 

So - without further ado - here are my favourite recipes for pupcakes!

1. Pumpkin Pie Pupcake

This cupcake recipe is perfect for fall weather. I use this recipe for dos cupcakes - especially when I need to make a large quantity. 

Personally, my dog loves this one - and it really helps her when she has an upset tummy. 

Benefits of Pumpkin:

1. Urinary Health

2. Digestive Health

3. Weight Management - For obese and senior dogs

4. Pumpkins also provide some much-needed moisture - which is very beneficial for dogs who do not drink enough water during the day.

2. Classic Pupcake

The classic pupcake is a plain and regular cupcake - for dogs who love the simple things in life. 

Make sure that you do not add in any honey, maple syrup or any sweeteners into this recipe. Apples are high in sugar - so they will provide the required sweetness.

3. Dog Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pupcakes

Do not panic! This recipe does not use real chocolate. It uses carob. 

What is Carob?

Carob is a fruit from the carob tree - found in Mediterranean places. In terms of taste, look and feel - it functions exactly like chocolate. However, it does not contain theobromine - which is a compound present in chocolate. It is this compound that makes chocolate so poisonous to dogs.

1. Full of healthy vitamins and minerals

All of these dog cupcakes are much-loved by my dog. In today's world, you could go out and buy these for your dogs from dog bakeries too. 

The only reason why I find that it is better to make them by yourself at home is: 

1. Your dog may or may not notice - but the fact that you are spending time making them something - shows them how much you love them

2. You are totally aware of all the ingredients that are going into the dog cupcakes. This means that you can control how much of what ingredient your dog is consuming

3. It is generally much healthier to make food at home

4. It is fresh

5. It is much cheaper than store-bought foods

6. Since most of these recipes are safe for human consumption - you could have a could of dog cupcakes too!

So go ahead - treat your furry friend to something special this weekend! They do so much for us - I think it is time that we do something for them too!
