News flash: I’m obsessed with my dog. He has a CLOSET for crying out loud. Needless to say, he’s a pampered little K-9. (My vet actually told me he’s spoiled and has an attitude problem- which only made me love him more).  So, of course, he gets one heck of a bday party every year. Lucky for him, it’s cupcake week. Why should he (or your pooch) be excluded? Below is a pretty simple recipe for doggy cupcakes- dare I say, “pupcakes”?


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup soft butter
  • 1/2 cup corn oil
  • 1 jar strained beef baby food
  • 4 eggs
  • Bacon Bits


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Cream butter until smooth.
  3. Add corn oil, baby food, and eggs and mix until smooth.
  4. Mix dry ingredients.
  5. Combine wet and dry ingredients until batter is smooth.
  6. Fold Bacon Bits into batter.
  7. Spoon batter into cupcake tins.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes and cool on wire rack.
  9. Frost with low fat cream cheese (or peanut butter) and sprinkle with Bacon Bits.  (You can also use ketchup to write a little message or just add extra flair).

Recipe makes around 12 standard size pupcakes.
