Pup-cakesDoggy Tested

We tested this recipe with four-year-old Lola, a Beagle-Bulldog mix with an appetite, who supervised the baking of this recipe. With her Beagle nose, she knew she was in for a sweet surprise as soon as the peanut butter jar cracked open!

It didn’t take long to mix up all the ingredients for the pup-cakes and get them in the oven. Once cooled, our taste tester Lola stepped in. She wasn’t thrilled to be asked to sit and give paw before receiving her pup-cake – although she happily obliged after getting a taste of these delicious pup-cakes!
