Happy Hen Treats - Cake Mix for Chickens (makes 1 cake or 8 cupcakes)
Description:Here at My Pet Chicken, we know you love your peeps. Why not celebrate their birthday in style and bake a cake (or muffins) with this clucking good cake mix? But of course, you don't have to wait until their birthday to bake them this special treat. Maybe you're just looking to have some fun -- and what could be more fun than baking a cake, and maybe even 'icing' it with yogurt and sprinkling it with mealworm 'sprinkles'? Seriously, who doesn't enjoy a party? Just remember to share your photos with us!
For the cake you will need:
Cake 'N' Cluck™ Mix
1 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
For the icing you will need:
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup Tapioca Starch
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray 8-inch round cake pan (or 8 sections of a cupcake pan) with non-stick cooking oil spray. In a mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, oil and water and stir until well blended. Pour this mixture into the cake or cupcake pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool the cake or cupcakes in pan for 15 minutes. Then remove the cake or cupcakes from the pan and let them cool completely before serving them to your chickens.
Icing Instructions (optional):
Mix the Greek Yogurt and Tapioca Starch together. Thin as needed with 2-3 tsp of water or milk. Then pour over the cake or muffins and spread evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle mealworms on top.
