Did Someone Say Cake? We Did! And Here's A Quick and Easy Recipe That Will Thrill Your Fur Friend

Updated: Oct 20, 2022

Who doesn't love a party? And better yet, who doesn't love cake?! Most of us do, and guess what? So does your fur friend! Of course, just like humans, it's never a good idea to load up on sweets, but a piece of cake here and there can't hurt, right?! Especially when it's someone's your dogs'! If you are like us, then you look forward to showering your fur friend with love, and you really pour on the love when it's their birthday am I right? You bet! Just recently, we had a birthday party for our most senior Resident, Champ. He's a whopping 13 years old, so we pulled out all the stops! We invited all his friends, got decorations, had some McDonald's plain cheeseburgers, presents, and even made a doggie cake! The party hats may have been a flop, but trust me when I say there was not a crumb of cake left by the end of the day because Champ and all of his friends made fast work of seeing it into their tummies. ;)

You can make your fur friend his own cake with these few ingredients.


* 3/4 cup flour (all-purpose is fine)

* 1/2 tsp. baking soda

* 1/4 tsp. baking powder

* 1 large egg

* 2 tbsp. peanut butter (no xylitol)

*2 tbsp coconut nut oil melted

* 1/4 cup applesauce (can substitute with pumpkin or banana)

* 1/2 cup shredded carrots or zucchini

For the icing:

1/2 cup Plain greek yogurt

1/4 cup peanut butter

This recipe can be doubled for a two-layer cake.

You can cook this in a glass baking dish or a small cake mold.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Let cool before applying the icing.

Please remember that this is meant to be used as a treat on special occasions and not something to be given regularly or in large quantities. Doing so may upset your fur friend's tummy. To see how we made the cake, click on the video:

I embellished the cake with a few Good Dog, Buddy homemade dog treats, which of course, Champ got to indulge in :)

And here he is, the birthday boy, licking his birthday cake plate clean!

It's safe to say that he and all the residents of Woody's Place enjoyed the doggie cake and had a great time at the party.
