Homemade Pupcake Recipe

Some people have their dogs very well trained. Others, well, I’m hoping there are others besides me…are trained very well by their dogs. Not following? Let me explain.

I walk down the stairs and can already hear my dogs scrambling to grab toys & wagging their tails in excitement to see & play with humans. The second they see it’s me, my one dog, Ziggy, immediately starts barking while the other, Zeke runs to his bed (the spot they go to get a treat). My pups have me trained so well because they know if they bark or do anything cute (or rather anything that shows emotion at all) I’ll give them a treat. I just can’t help it!

So I decided that instead of giving them a store bought treat why not take it to the next level & make them a “pupcake”. They loved them, and quite frankly a few peanut butter loving humans loved them just as much..cough me cough. (don’t judge…it ends up tasting like a peanut butter muffin & all the ingredients are completely normal ones you’d use in everyday cooking! oh and no I didn’t eat the treat on top thank you.)
