Today I was doing a bit of spring cleaning when it hit me....
TODAY IS VADER'S BIRTHDAY!
I cant believe I almost forgot!
My pups are my kids so I knew I couldnt let this day pass without doing something special. After I finished my cleaning I got online to look for recipes for doggy cakes. I had some ingredients for some and some from others. I didnt really feel like going to the store so I made up my own cake and I would like to share the recipe with you!!
For the cake:
1 banana (I actually used 3/4 of a very large banana)
1/4c of Flour
2 tbs of Peanut Butter
1 tsp of coconut oil
1 tsp Baking Soda
First I mashed up the banana in one bowl and I put the peanut butter and coconut oil in another
I melted the peanut butter and oil mixture in the microwave (it only takes 30 seconds).
I then added everything together with the banana and mixed it up.
At this point, Vader was pretty aware that I was cooking with peanut butter. It is his favorite.
I was just making a small cake for Vader and Lola to share so I got out a little heart shaped ramekin. I sprayed it with cooking spray and dumped in the batter.
While that baked (15 minutes at 350), I made the icing.
For the icing:
2 tbs Peanut Butter
2 tbs Cornstarch
I didnt measure the honey or water but I would estimate that I used about a tablespoon of each one.
I mixed them all in a bowl until it was smooth.
The cake turned out wonderful and it smelled SO GOOD.
Seriously, I almost didnt want to share it with my dogs.
I put the cake in the fridge to cool before I could ice it. Vader tried to get in to it, he was not very patient!
After it was cool enough, I iced it and put some random treats on top, Look how cute!!
I didnt let the dogs eat the entire cake. What kind of mother would I be if I let them eat a whole cake!?
They each were given a piece and they were happy with that.
It didnt last very long, They move pretty fast!
