Birthday Pupcake Recipe!

Who doesn't love to treat their pups on their birthday? That is why I'm sharing the pupcake recipe I use every single year with my dog's Yogi Bear and Lilo on their birthdays

Peanut Butter and Banana Pupcakes

A simple and tasty treat for dogs (and people if you're really hungry), these 'pupcakes' from Love Swah are Lilo's favourite (as you can tell in the pic above)!

Makes 3 large cupcakes and 10 mini cupcakes.

Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 15 mins


For the cakes:

  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 medium banana mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp water

For the frosting:

  • 120g cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 mashed banana

NOTE: Make sure the peanut butter doesn't contain the artificial sweetener xylitol, as it's toxic to dogs.


For the cakes:

  • Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Line muffin tin with cupcake papers.
  • Sift flour and baking power together. Set it aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine peanut butter, mashed banana, egg and water.
  • Stir in flour mixture and mix until smooth. Scoop into muffin tin.
  • Bake mini cupcakes for 8 - 10 mins and big cupcakes for 15 - 20 mins.

For the frosting:

  • Mix the cream cheese and peanut butter together.
  • Add mashed banana. Continue mixing for two minutes or until well mixed. It won't be as fluffy as normal buttercream, but the pups won't mind!
  • Spoon icing into piping bag and swirl onto cooled cupcakes.
