For the Cupcake

  • ¾ cup (93g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons (33g) peanut butter (see important note)
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) oil
  • ¼ cup (62g) applesauce unsweetened
  • 2 tablespoons (42g) honey

For the Frosting

  • ½ cup (118ml) heavy whipping cream


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 6-inch round cake pan (or a 9x5-inch bread pan) with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Stir flour, baking soda, baking powder, peanut butter, oil, applesauce, egg and honey. Pour into pans. Bake 20-30 minutes, until browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.
  • To make frosting: beat heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
  • Frost cake as desired. You can double the frosting recipe and torte the cake (cut the cake in half horizontally) to make it a 2-layer cake.
  • Store covered in refrigerator for up to 3 days.



  • Please use your discretion when it comes to feeding your dog. I am not a vet nor am I a doggy nutritionist. If you think your dog is allergic to any of the ingredients please take caution. This cake has been enjoyed by many dogs just fine - but use your knowledge of your dog and your common sense when feeding. Crazy for Crust is not responsible for how your dog reacts to a recipe.
  • PEANUT BUTTER: do NOT USE anything with xylitol - be sure to read the ingredients list. Natural peanut butter is best.
