Doggie Birthday Cake Recipe
A carrot cake to celebrate your favorite pup, this easy cake combines shredded carrots with peanut butter, oil, vanilla, optional honey, and wheat or all-purpose flour.
I know that there is a concern with the vanilla extract and the baking soda. If you can find alcohol free vanilla extract, use that because the alcohol is harmful to dogs. If you can't, then substitute 1/2t almond extract for the 1t vanilla extract. As for the baking soda, 1t will not harm your dog. The recipe came out very well, once I folded in the flour and baking powder, sifted of course, it reminded me of working with a slightly more moist cookie dough. I would suggest making them into cupcakes, or, like I did, mini bundt cake. Use a spoon, or you can actually buy a cupcake spoon. Also, making them into cookies would work, just take 1T, roll into a ball and put on a cookie sheet about 2" apart. I baked my treats for 10 minutes and they came out great. The size in my opinion, is perfect, it's a treat, and making it portioned meant I could then give her one for her birthday, then the others for a good deed. Remember, dogs, like people, can be picky eaters. They aren't going to like everything,
These are nice cupcake treats for dogs that I made up for my dog Presley's 4th birthday. They are perfect for dogs with food allergies. Warning: they don't look pretty, but Fido will love them! These freeze well, and you can zap them in the microwave for a nice, occasional dog snack.
Made it as pup cakes for my dog's birthday and he (and his friends) loved it! I used coconut peanut butter, pumpkin purée (instead of carrots), and brown rice flour. I sampled the final product-tasty for humans, too!
