As promised....here is the recipe for the much adored, always devoured PUPCAKES! Keep in mind that they're perfectly safe and relatively healthy for humans too...they're just not as sweet as one might expect from something that looks like this.
Here is Salinger's girlfriend Sophie eyeballing the goods! As you can see...you can use the batter to make any type shape cake...cupcakes, mini cupcakes, large cake pans...
I've even poured it out into a cookie sheet and then "stamped" out shapes with cookie cutters!

Here's the recipe. It's pretty forgiving......so don't worry about exact measurements.
Banana Pupcake
2 cups water
3 ripe bananas
Splash of vanilla
3 cups whole wheat flour (I used the whole wheat pastry flour)
1/2 Tbs baking powder
1 egg
2 Tbs honey

Mix together and pour into pans (whatever shape you like…cupcakes, big pans, etc.) Bake at 350 and check after 20-25 minutes. Baking time will depend on what shape pan you use.
I baked on a parchment covered cookie sheet in a thin layer and then cut out with a cookie cutter to make mini cakes (2 layers each). Baking time was right at 30 minutes.
1 package softened cream cheese (reduced fat or fat free is ok)
Dash of cinnamon
1 T honey
Blend and use as you would use frosting.

You can be all fancy schmancy and use decorating tips and a piping bag and the top with sprinkles or whatever. OR you can just slop it on and be done with it. I don't think the dogs care which method you employ!

Good luck everyone! Let me know how the turn out if you make them!

OH....one other tip....they freeze GREAT! Just decorate them and stash them in the freezer if you need to.
