Happy 1st Birthday Einstein!



Tomorrow marks Einstein’s 1st birthday, and I thought we would celebrate today by giving him a birthday cake to enjoy πŸ™‚ Einstein managed to inhale his piece of cake in under 3 seconds, so I think he was pleased with his first birthday cake.

Here are some pictures of the birthday boy enjoying his cake:

Peanut Butter Banana Cake for Dogs
(Adapted from Just the Recipes)

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 banana, mashed (about 1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup honey
1 egg

Mix flour and baking soda. Add remaining ingredients and mix together. Pour into greased 8″ (I used 9″) round cake pan and bake at 350 degree F for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool. Puree cottage cheese or fat free cream cheese for icing.

    This is great. I made Dog friendly ice cream for our Golden’s birthday last summer. It too was PB and Banana with yogurt. She went crazy for it. Now she can have cake on her next birthday πŸ™‚

    My Chief’s 4th birthay is in 2 weeks!

    I’d recommend leaving out the vanilla, as dogs just aren’t going to notice the difference, and replacing the veg oil with coconut oil. It’s very healthy for dogs just as it is for humans!


  29. Candace on August 7, 2012 at 2:45 pm

    Is there any difference in all purpose flour and the whole wheat flour?


    • Michelle on August 9th, 2012 at 4:30 pm

      Hi Candace, The whole wheat flour is generally better for them, but in terms of how it comes together and is baked, you could use all-purpose.

    I just want to thank you so much for all of your wonderful recipes. Our first baby Lily (Mini Schnauzer) is going to be celebrating her first birthday soon and we have been looking for good cake recipes; thanks to you we found them.


  31. JaNonda Collins on September 19, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    Made for my 3 dogs today. They loved it! Easy to make & smells so good πŸ™‚


  32. Ang on January 27, 2013 at 1:06 pm

  33. Jenna on March 10, 2013 at 10:55 pm

  34. Tracie Davis on April 28, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    My dog loves the treats I get from your site! Thanks, Tracie


  35. Nick on December 3, 2013 at 10:05 am

    The pictures of the dog sitting at the table are hilarious. It’s funny how they seem to have a personality all their own. The dog bone recipe with only four ingredients is getting book marked. Thanks for the share!
