A doggy cake: Happy Birthday Tara

image

This sweet squishy face is 4 years old now. I still remember the moment she walked in the door and I saw her tripping over her ears. Just the cutest little wrinkled baby. She’s not so little now, weighing in near 100lbs (she’s a beast). I of course like any crazy dog owner, wanted to celebrate her turning another year older. Normally we go to the local doggy bakery and get her things. But obviously since I’m a blogger I have to make something myself.

Audrey and I made her a special cake. I didn’t eat it but according to her it was delicious. It was so easy to make too. No sugar added.

You’ll need:
1 cup flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c vegetable oil
1 cup peanut butter
1 banana mashed
1 egg

Preheat your oven to 350°. Grease your pan. I used a pie tin but a 9×9 pan would work too. Mix your ingredients together well. Then pour into greased cake pan and bake for 30-35 minutes. Check it with a toothpick and make sure it comes out clean. Then let it cool before frosting.

Oh the frosting, Audrey ate it as a dip with her apple slices and loved it. You’ll need a beater for the best results.

You need:
1 container yogurt (we used vanilla)
1 banana mashed
2 cups peanut butter

Place all of your ingredients in your mixing bowl and beat until you see a creamy texture begin. Then turn up the speed to whip in some air and make it lighter. Let chill in the fridge for up to an hour while your cake is cooling. This will make it easier to spread. Then frost your cake.

Voila! A dog cake that’s safe for the whole family to eat.
