Dog-friendly Pupcakes

This special treat for your pups are sure to get the tail wagging! Remember to serve up these doggy cupcakes in moderation because we don’t want your poodle addicted to strudel!

Makes 12-14 pupcakes.


2¾ cups water

¼ cup unsweetened apple sauce

¼ teaspoon vanilla

4 cups wholemeal flour

1 cup dried apple pieces (you can also use fresh fruit)

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 cage-free egg, beaten slightly

4 tablespoons honey


  1. Preheat oven to 175°C. Spray a cupcake tin with cooking spray.
  2. Mix all wet ingredients thoroughly and combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
  3. Slowly add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, scraping well to make sure no dry mixture is left.
  4. Pour the mixture into the cupcake tin.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the centre of a pupcake and if it comes out dry, they are ready to come out of the oven.
