Carrot Banana Cupcakes For Dogs

Ingredients

  1. Cake ingredients:
  2. 2 cups water
  3. 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  4. 2 carrots, grated
  5. 1 egg
  6. 2 tablespoons honey
  7. 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  8. 4 cups whole-wheat flour
  9. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  10. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Icing ingredients:
  2. 3/4 cup cream cheese
  3. 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  4. 2 tablespoons honey

Directions

For cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together water, carrots, apple sauce, egg, and honey. Once mixed together, add the mashed bananas.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and cinnamon.
  4. Combine dry and wet mixture and mix thoroughly.
  5. Spoon into cupcake tins (lined with cupcake papers) about 3/4 full. Handy tip: Spray inside the paper liner with a bit on nonstick spray (Pam) or lightly coat with butter. Otherwise the cupcake will stick to the liner. I learned this the hard way
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of a cupcake comes out clean.
  7. Cool cupcakes on rack before frosting.
  8. For Icing:

  9. Beat cream cheese, peanut butter, and honey until smooth.
  10. When cupcakes are cooled, ice with mixture.
