Today was Emma's birthday party! In honor of her 4th year of cuteness I made her puppy friendly cupcakes or as I've decided to call them, pupcakes! They were pretty easy to make and like any good "Mommy" I let Emma lick the spoon when I was done.

The dough is really thick, but they come out looking golden brown.

Here is the recipe:

Peanut Butter Pupcakes

1 cup white or whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup finely shredded carrots
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup honey
1 egg


Mix peanut butter, honey and vegetable oil until smooth (just eyeball it!)

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C)

Mix together flour and baking soda. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
Pour into a greased cupcake tin and bake for 30 minutes or until brown.

Frost this cake with icing and decorate with thickly shredded carrot pieces.

She wasn't so sure about the candle but she devoured her cake! The peanut butter icing caused some pretty funny faces, but otherwise she loved it. NBH, Katie and I tried some too and you mostly just taste peanut butter and they were really nice.
