Easy Pup Cakes Recipe

September 23, 2017

Ever think your lil pup deserves that extra little something? I can't help myself when I pass the treat tin to slip Alfie some extra treats. But, as I'm reminded constantly by my parents - too many treats aren't good for him.

Well, while my sister and I have been home this past summer, we've been in the kitchen making a batch of home bakes weekly. Home bakes just taste so much better than shop bought. So who's to say that's any different for our little furry friends?

By making your own puppy treats, you can control what's going in them and keep them healthy for your pup. We decided to give it a go and see whether Alfie would enjoy some home made treats. And what can I say, its gone down a huge success.

These pup cakes are super easy and quick to make. We decided to make them into little fairy cakes, but this can also be combined into one big cake (say if you're celebrating a milestone in your pup's life). Although these are small fairy cakes, we've decided to half them when we're giving them to Alfie. Ever heard of too much of a good thing?

1 egg
60ml vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
80g honey
135g grated carrots
120g plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda


1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees / 160 degrees fan and grease cake tins.
2. Combine the egg, oil vanilla extract and honey together in a bowl. Stir in the carrots.
3. Sift the flour and the bicarbonate of soda together and fold into the mixture.
4. Bake for 40 mins in oven.
5. Leave to cool before serving to your pup.

It's as simple as that! Other recipes also put in peanut butter, which you can add to the mixture - but our family isn't the biggest fan of it so we didn't have it on hand. The mixture holds together nicely and looks just like a human fairy cake. Almost good enough to eat, but I wouldn't recommend it!

Let me know if you try these and if your pup enjoys them too!
