My dog, Macs, had his 4th birthday yesterday and like a good Mom I baked him this wonderful peanut butter carrot cake with carob chip sprinkles. I made the cake in a loaf pan, then tried to carve it into a bone shape. What I found was that I’m not so good at cake carving and will skip that step next time.
He seemed to know this cake was for him and he sat watching me make it with great anticipation. After the cake was assembled he could hardly control his excitement and drooling.
Peanut Butter Carrot Doggy Cake
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup natural peanut butter
¼ cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup honey
1 cup shredded carrots
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8″ round cake pan or an 8×4-inch loaf pan.
2. Whisk together the flour and baking soda. Add the rest of the ingredients and, using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, mix until thoroughly combined. Pour batter into pan and bake for about 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Frost with peanut butter.
