Dogs Love Cake Too

Each year for my dogs Maggie Magz and Bruce's birthday I bake them their very own cakes. All of the ingredients that I use are safe for dogs. Let me warn you that I'm not the greatest when it comes to decorating the cakes but the dogs don't seem to mind at all. They just love when their birthdays roll around and they know what's coming.

Bruce's 7th Birthday Cake

Ingredients You Will Need to Make This Cake

  • 1 1/2 cups of rice flour (brown or white)
  • 1 Tsp. of baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups of pumpkin (I used canned)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup of smooth peanut butter

  • 3 Tbs. of E.V.O. (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
Ingredients for the Frosting
  • 1/4 cup of carob chips melted
  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter
  • I decorated the cake with peanut dog cookies I picked up at the bulk food store
Instructions for the Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit 
  2. Grease and flour a square 9" x 5" pound cake pan
  3. In a medium size mixing bowl combine the rice flour and baking powder
  4. Stir in the pumpkin and then beat in the eggs
  5. Next add and stir in the peanut butter, honey, and the oil
  6. Make sure to stir everything really well and then add the mixture to your baking pan
  7. Pop into the oven for 40 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick into the cake and have it come out clean
  8. Remove from the oven and let it cool for about 15 minutes
  9. Carefully remove the cake from the pan and cool it on a rack completely before frosting
  10. Please note that you don't have to frost this cake
  11. Once cooled frost and decorate
Instructions for the Frosting
  1. Melt the carob chips in the microwave
  2. Stir in the peanut butter and apply to the cake
  3. Decorate with small biscuits or any other way you'd like to.

As you can see I do enjoy baking for my two Newfoundland dogs that can be found waiting in the kitchen by the stove when they know that I'm making them a special treat.

  1. This sounds like fun. I wish my dog would eat cake. I have a hard time finding things she likes. I will give this a try and see what she thinks. Thanks!
    You have some beautiful puppies there! :)
