Call me a crazy dog mom, but I can’t help but find joy in making dog friendly treats for my precious pup. Aspen celebrated her six month birthday on September 13th so of course I baked her a puppy cake to celebrate. Yes I know it’s not her real birthday, but look at that face, how could you not want to celebrate her little milestones? We had a little celebration in the backyard with Whiskey, our new kitten. Aspen loved being the center of attention, but was kind enough to share her cake with Whiskey. While the recipe is completely dog safe and human friendly, it is definitely not a sweet treat in my book. Hope you and your pup enjoy! As you can see in the pictures, Aspen truly enjoyed her cake, it took a few shots to get the perfect one of her admiring the cake!
2 tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp vegeatble oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tbsp honey
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
4 oz cream cheese
dog treats, to decorate
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 2 ramekins and set aside.
Combine the egg, peanut butter, oil, vanilla, and honey, if desired, in a large bowl; blend well. Stir in the carrots and mix thoroughly. Sift together the flour and baking soda and fold into the carrot mixture. Spoon cake batter into prepared pans.
Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes; then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Frost with plain cream cheese, as desired. Garnish with doggie treats.
Just a taste, mom, please!
