BONUS RECIPE: DOGGY BIRTHDAY CAKE 🐾 🎂


Yesterday was my kitchen helper Lexi’s 4th birthday, so I made a cake for her 🍰 I posted this on my personal Instagram story and received a lot of requests for the recipe (obviously there are other crazy dog parents like me😉) This cake is human-friendly too l, but it’s not quite as sweet as regular cake 😅



⚠️ I would also like to say, for dog parents who have their dogs on grain-free diets (meaning no wheat, oats, rice, etc) please beware! There have been many links between grain-free diets and risk of heart disease in dogs 🐶

Ingredients:

1 cup all purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup peanut butter (divided)

1/2 cup pumpkin purée

1 egg

4 Tbsp vegetable oil 

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt


Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350. Mix together flour and baking soda in a small bowl. In a bigger bowl, whisk 1/4 cup peanut butter, pumpkin, egg, oil, and apple sauce until evenly combined.

2. Slowly add flour mixture into wet-ingredient mixture, whisking well before adding more. When combined, spray cake pan with nonstick spray, and add cake mix to pan. Bake for 15-25 mins.

3. While cake is baking, mix 1/2 cup Greek yogurt and 1/4 cup peanut butter in small bowl to make “icing.” When cake is done, remove from oven and allow to cool, spread evenly with icing, and serve to your furry friend 🐶 🍰
