Happy birthday to our 3 year old pup! Sometimes I think he's a real human baby. And we definitely treat him like one... No shame. We made him a Puppy Cake for his birthday and he could NOT get enough of them. Here's a recipe for what we did:

  • 1 egg

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter

  • 1/4 cup cooking oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/3 cup honey (optional)

  • 1 cup shredded carrots

  • 1 cup whole wheat or white flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 6 cup ring mold.
  2. Combine the egg, peanut butter, oil, vanilla, and honey, if desired, in a large bowl; blend well. Stir in the carrots and mix thoroughly. Sift together the flour and baking soda and fold into the carrot mixture. Spoon cake batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes; then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
