How to make Pupcakes – Dog Cupcake Recipe With Frosting

Pumpkin and Apple pupcake recipe with yummy frosting for your dog to indulge. Quick and Easy to make and Ideal for doggie birthday parties.

We collaborated with Richard and his mum Mikaela for this cupcake recipe. I hope your furbaby will enjoy it as much as Ollie and Winks did eating them! 


These pupcakes were a huge hit with Richard and his friends at his birthday party. This is such a simple and easy pupcake recipe, and they turn out super light and fluffy too. The pupcakes take roughly 30 minutes to make (including cooking time) We like to make our own pumpkin purée and apple purée, so we know exactly what we’re giving Richard and his friends. The leftover purée can be frozen in silicone moulds and given as treats later on.

The quantity is dependent on the size of your muffin tray. We made mini pupcakes and we’re able to get 24 out of the batch, but I think it would make roughly 12 regular-sized pupcakes. We picked up our mini muffin tray from Spotlight for about $15 when it was on sale.
