Pupcakes- Dog Cake Recipe

A Pupcake is a dog cake recipe you can safely serve to the furry friend in your life. Made with peanut butter and whole grains, it has few ingredients so it's kind to your dog's tummy.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 2 Cakes


  • 1/4 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/4 cup Quick Cooking Oats
  • 1/4 cup Natural Creamy Peanut Butter Be sure there are no artificial sweeteners. These are not good for your pup.
  • 1/4 cup Water, to bring the dough together
  • Banana Slices and Oats for Garnish


  1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. (SEE RECIPE NOTES FOR OPTIONAL PUPCAKE- (DOG CAKE )ICING ICING RECIPE) A muffin tin is best for this and a stand mixer of you have it. A hand mixer will also work. Grease the inside of 2 of the muffin cups with a little coconut oil or use muffin liners.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer beat together the oats, flour, and peanut butter for the cake. To get it to be a smooth dough, add about 1/8-1/4 c. of warm water to bring it together. The cake will basically turn into a biscuit texture.
  3. Push 1/2 the dough into each of the muffin cups. Bake the pupcakes for 15-20 minutes or until completely set and dog biscuit texture. Remove from tins and cool on a wire rack. Using an icing tip in a ziplock or pastry bag pipe the icing on (If using) and/or garnish with more oats and banana slices.

Recipe Notes

You can make an easy and delicious icing your pet will love.  Simply mix together 2 tbsp. of plain greek yogurt (no artificial sweetener) with 1/4 cup of smooth peanut butter.  Put this into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip (you can also use the tip of a ziplock bag) and pipe the icing on. You can also just spread it with a knife ;)
