Dog Birthday Cake

Yield: One 6" Dog Cake

Dog Birthday Cake


  • 1 egg
  • 30 g peanut butter
  • 30 g olive oil
  • 20 g honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 70 g mashed banana (or other fruit puree)
  • 35 g shredded carrot
  • 145 g whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 125 g plain yogurt
    for the “frosting”;
  • 200 g fromage blanc (or very thick greek yogurt)
  • 15 g honey
  • food colouring (optional)
  • sprinkles (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Oil a 6″ cake pan, line the bottom with parchment, and set aside. Combine the egg, peanut butter, olive oil, honey, and vanilla in a bowl, and whisk together.
  • Stir in the banana and carrot. Then mix in the flour and baking powder, followed by the yogurt.
  • Bake for about 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Next make the frosting, by combing the fromage blanc (or thick greek yogurt), honey, and food colouring in a small bowl. Whisk for several minutes until smooth.
  • Spread the frosting over the top of the cooled cake, and decorate if desired.
