I can’t believe my little Otis is one year old! The time just flies so fast. What kind of birthday would it be without a proper party? We had a few doggie friends over, some human ones too and of course we had a lot of food. For the human friends I made two savoury pies and a salad, and for the four legged ones I baked some carrot cup cakes. I actually tasted one of them and it was quite tasty. The dogs loved them!! I was so delighted! Big thanks for the beautiful dog gifts everyone, Otis loves them so much!!
2 ½ cups shredded carrots
3 large eggs
1 cup apple juice
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup oats
3 cups wholemeal flour
Some extra shredded carrots for decoration
Preheat oven to 200° C. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases and set aside. In a large bowl stir together the carrots, eggs and apple juice. Set aside. In another medium bowl whisk together the cinnamon, oats and flour. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients. Stir until well blended. Spoon mixture into paper cases. The dough will be thick, so you may wet your fingers to press the dough into place.
The dog cupcake will not rise very much, so do not worry about over filling the paper cases. Bake for 25 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack before serving.
