Dog and Human Friendly Banana Cupcakes
It was my fur baby’s birthday a couple weeks ago and every year, either, I bake him a cake or we cook him some pancakes. He loves them both! If he could speak he probably want both. HAHA!
Scholesy (Yes, he is named after Paul Scholes the footballer) turned 6 years old, we got him when he was 12 weeks weee baby. He was so fluffy and cute. A dream came true for me and the children. I have been wishing for a dog since I met Adrian. Growing up in the Philippines, our family had pets and a couple of farm animals. I had 3 dogs and a cat who gave birth to 3 kittens. My papa had a pig who gave birth to 10 piglets (they were so adorable) . We sold most of them but we kept a couple and we had chickens too! Living in London I missed having a pet.
This year, we decided Scholesy might like some cupcakes with bananas with buttercream icing. I hope people won’t feel grossed out because I baked it with him. This was consumed but us only and not sold. I know there are Karen’s out there.
This recipe I tailored for dogs and humans, I reduced the sugar, butter and I took out the chocolates and walnuts. So both fur babies and humans are happy. You can also take out the buttercream icing if your fur baby is sensitive to dairy or cream. Scholesy loves icing! He doesn’t always have it but when he does, he is hooked!!
I hope you enjoy this recipe!

For the cake
For the Butter Icing
Heat the oven 220C or 425F or gas amrk 7 or200 fan oven
In a bowl add all the dry ingredients, plain flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and mix them all together well. Next, in another bowl add all the wet ingredients, melted unsalted butter, mashed bananas, egg, brown sugar (lol this is not wet but just go with it haha!) and vanilla extract. Give it a good mix until all of the ingredients are incorporated. Then, add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix them well.
Using a cupcake tray, place the paper cupcake liners into each hole. spoon some of the cake batter until the liners are filled but don’t fill it to the top as it will grow when baking.
Place the cupcakes in the oven for 5 minutes at 220C or 425F or 200 fan oven, then reduce it to 180C or 350F or gas mark 4 or 160 fan oven for 15-19 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in the middle of a cupcake comes out clean. Take it out of the oven and allow the cupcakes to cool down completely.
To make the icing, using a food processor, add unsalted butter, icing sugar, vanilla extract and cream into the food processor bow. Mix them all up until you have a smooth texture, stopping in between scooping the sides to mix well. Before adding the icing on the cupcakes, I cut off the top parts of the cupcakes. Scoop the icing into a piping bag and decorate your cupcakes however you like and have fun! Don’t forget your sprinkles too!
