On Feb. 24, bakers are invited to join in the fight against animal cruelty by participating in a cupcake fundraiser to celebrate Canada’s second annual National Cupcake Day for SPCAs and Humane Societies. The cupcake fundraiser will help shelters across Canada give a surrendered cat or dog a new forever home, rescue a neglected or abused animal and give them a second chance at a new life, and provide emergency surgery to injured animals.

(for your four-legged friend)
- 2-3/4 cups water
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup dried apple pieces (you can also use fresh fruit)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 egg, beaten
- 4 tablespoons honey
Preheat your oven to 350 F (177 C). Spray cupcake tin with cooking spray. Mix wet ingredients thoroughly. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients slowly, scraping well to make sure no dry mixture is left. Pour into cupcake tins. Bake for 30 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the centre and if it comes out dry, they are done. Cool completely and serve. Store in a sealed container.
Makes 12-14 pupcakes.
The Ontario SPCA shared their Pupcakes recipe with Bakers Journal to inspire our readers to register and participate at www.nationalcupcakeday.ca .
