Ingredients:

Cake:

  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ⅛ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg

  • Frosting:

    • ½ cup plain greek yogurt
    • ¼ cup peanut butter

    How to make the ultimate dog birthday cake!

    1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. 

    1. Combine flour and baking soda in a large bowl.
    2. In a separate medium bowl mix together the vegetable oil, peanut butter, applesauce, and pumpkin puree. Once that is combined, mix in the egg and mix until combined. 
    3. Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir until combined.
    4. Pour the mixture into an 8” round pan. You can use a square pan as well, the shape doesn’t really matter (it’ll taste amazing either way!) Grease the pan with oil so nothing sticks.
    5. Bake for approx 25-30 minutes. A trick is inserting a toothpick into the cake center. If it comes out clean and the cake springs back while being pressed lightly you’re good to go!
      7. Get your wire rack and remove the cake from the pan by shaking and tapping it lightly. Let the cake cook on the rack.
    6. After cooling, add pup-friendly frosting if desired, (let’s be honest, why wouldn’t we add frosting!?)

    Easy Frosting

    1. Mix greek yogurt and peanut butter until they’re well combined.

    1. Spread over the cake!

      Hot tip: If the cake isn’t being served immediately, pop that sucker in the refrigerator. Can be topped with little dog biscuits! We don’t recommend lit candles.
