The Best Doggie Birthday Cake Recipe | Easy Cake for Dogs Recipe
As a dog lover, I always look for ways to pamper my furry friend. So, when I stumbled upon Native Pet’s video that showcased a doggie birthday cake recipe, I knew I had to try it out. In this article, we will share our experience of making their cake and give you our honest review.
Dog birthday parties have become increasingly popular in recent years, and nothing makes a party better than a customized doggie cake. While there are many pre-made options available in the market, we wanted to try making our cake.
Native Pet’s recipe caught our attention because it uses only the best ingredients that are safe for dogs. The video provides a step-by-step guide, making it easy even for novice bakers.
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 cup natural peanut butter
- 1 cup unsweetened Greek yogurt
- 2 tablespoons honey
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
Making the Cake
We followed the recipe exactly as it was mentioned in the video. First, we whisked the dry ingredients – whole wheat flour and baking powder – in a bowl and kept it aside.
In a stand mixer, we mixed pumpkin puree, peanut butter, Greek yogurt, honey, vanilla extract, and eggs until it was smooth. We then gradually combined the dry ingredients to the mixture and mixed well.
Next, we oiled and floured two 6-inch round baking pans evenly. We divided the batter between the two pans and baked it in a preheated oven, at 350°F for around 30-40 minutes, until the cake was cooked entirely.
Once we took the cake out of the oven, we allowed it to cool for some time, before taking it out of the pans. We then placed one of the cakes upside down, kept a layer of frosting on it, and put the other cake on top.
Peanut Butter-Yogurt Frosting
To make the frosting, we mixed natural peanut butter and unsweetened Greek yogurt until it was smooth. We then applied a thick layer of frosting on the top and sides of the cake, to make it look appetizing.
Finally, we used dog biscuits as decorations on the top of the cake. We were delighted with how it turned out, and it looked like a bakery-fresh cake.
Making Native Pet’s doggie birthday cake was a delightful experience, and the recipe is a real treat for dogs. We highly recommend it to any pet parent looking for a homemade doggie cake that is both healthy and visually appealing.
- Can I use any flour other than whole wheat flour?
No, the recipe specifically uses whole wheat flour, as it is healthy for dogs and spongy enough for the cake.
- Can I replace pumpkin with any other vegetable?
Unfortunately, no. Pumpkin puree provides a smooth texture to the cake and is also rich in nutrients.
- Can I skip the frosting?
Yes, you can if your dog has dietary restrictions. The cake is also delicious without frosting.
- What can I use as decorations other than dog biscuits?
You can use fruits such as blueberries or strawberries as decorations as they are safe for dogs.
- How long can I store the cake?
You can store the cake in the refrigerator for up to five days, but it is best served fresh.
