Banana Pup-cakes with Cream Cheese Frosting!!!

Posted on

Banana Pupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing!As you know, Bear’s birthday was the other day.  We usually get Frosty Paws for Bear & Butters to celebrate, but this time I thought I would do something different.  You see, it is a little difficult sometimes because Bear is allergic to Peanut Butter, a common ingredient in dog treats.  But as I looked around the web to see what other kinds of treats are out there, I ran across this Banana Pupcake recipe.  I liked that there are only a few ingredients in it, so it is healthy for them.  And it just so happened that I had some ripe bananas on top of the fridge.

I got all my ingredients together and got started.Ingredients

 

First, I mixed the water, bananas, vanilla, egg and honey.Mix

I added the flour and baking powder, and mixed.IMAG0434

 I greased my cupcake pans lightly.  Then I poured the batter into cupcake pans.

I baked them at 350° for 20 minutes.Pupcakes!

While they cooled, I made the icing.  Using my mixer, I combined 12 oz nonfat cream cheese, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 tsp. honey.IMAG0439

Once cooled, I iced the pupcakes with the cream cheese mixture and added a Milk Bone for garnish. I only iced 8 - I froze the rest for use next month when it's Butters' Birthday. I think they came out really cute.IMAG0441

Bear and Butters loved them! They were a little confused on how to eat them at first, but once they figured it out they were gone.  Hope your pups enjoy them as much as mine did!
