Homemade Dog Birthday Cake Recipe

Is your furry friend's birthday just around the corner? Celebrate their special day with a homemade dog birthday cake that's not only delicious but also safe for them to enjoy. This simple recipe is packed with dog-friendly ingredients and lots of love. Let's get started!


For the Cake:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple puree

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (make sure it doesn't contain xylitol, which is toxic to dogs)

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 cup grated carrots

  • 1/2 cup shredded courgette

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened Greek yogurt

For the Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened Greek yogurt

  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter


1. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 175°C (350°F) and grease a 6-inch round cake pan or a silicone mold. If you don't have a small cake pan, you can use cupcake molds.

2. Make the Cake:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour and baking powder.

  • In a separate bowl, mix the apple puree, peanut butter, vegetable oil, and egg until well combined.

  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until you have a smooth batter.

  • Fold in the grated carrots and shredded courgette.

  • Pour the cake batter into your greased cake pan.

3. Bake:

  • Place the cake pan in the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  • Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for a few minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.

4. Make the Frosting:

  • In a small bowl, combine the Greek yogurt and peanut butter. This will be your dog-friendly frosting. You can adjust the consistency by adding a bit more yogurt if needed.

5. Decorate the Cake:

  • Once the cake is completely cooled, spread the yogurt and peanut butter frosting evenly over the top.

  • For an extra special touch, you can decorate the cake with some dog-friendly treats like small biscuits or pieces of dog food kibble.

6. Serve and Celebrate:

  • Place the cake in front of your pup and sing them a "Happy Birthday" song as you present their special treat.

  • Take some adorable photos to capture the moment!

Remember, this cake is a treat for your dog, so feed it to them in moderation. You can store any leftovers in the refrigerator for a few days, but it's best when fresh. Your furry friend will surely appreciate the effort and love you put into making their special day memorable.

Happy birthday to your beloved pet! Enjoy the celebration and the tail-wagging goodness of this homemade dog birthday cake!
