Happy Birthday Diesel!!!

Today is Diesel’s third birthday!! Happy birthday pumpkin!!! (My mom says I need to stop calling him that in public because all the neighbor dogs are making fun of him…. I think he likes it…)

Anyways, I love love love celebrating birthday’s.  Including his, why should he be left out??  Did you know that there are dog-friendly cake recipes?  Yes indeedy. Rachel Ray even has a page devoted to pet friendly recipes! I will proudly admit that I spoil him and bake him doggie cupcakes.

Because of final exams creeping up, I haven’t had the chance to make him his special birthday cupcakes.  But, here’s the recipe I used last year and will probably use again this year.  I think he really enjoyed himself at last years birthday party.

Let the tradition continue!

Banana Honey Dog Cupcakes


  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 bannans
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tbs baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp honey
  1. Preheat oven to 350.  In mixing bowl combine water, bananas, vanilla, egg, honey.  Add whole wheat flour and baking powder.
  2. Spray or line muffin tray.  Fill muffin cups 3/4 of the way.
  3. Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean.

So, he wasn't a big fan of the birthday hat. But I promise he was having a good time.

Ps – For those of you wondering, I tasted them! They weren’t bad, just super bland.
