Coconut-Honey Doggy Cake [Happy 3rd Birthday, Duke!]
An easy coconut-honey doggy cake made with only a handful of ingredients and perfect for celebrating your pup’s birthday!
Today is Duke’s 3rd birthday!!
I can’t believe this little furry nut has been with us for nearly three years already! Time flies when you’re having fun, right?! A week after we got back from our beach wedding, we picked him up. Our house wouldn’t be nearly the same without him, and Einstein would get a lot more uninterrupted nap time in, for sure ;-)
We’re so excited to celebrate his special day today – a lot of tug of war with Einstein, chasing tennis balls in the back yard, and a ton of extra affection (which he can’t get enough of). He and Einstein got to devour his birthday cake a day early! :)
If you’ve been following along here for any length of time, you know that I like to whip up a new homemade dog treat (or cake!) for Einstein and Duke’s birthday. Since Einstein has now blown out nine candles(!) there’s a pretty good archive of doggy treats if you’re interested!
This time I churned out a really easy and simple four-ingredient coconut-honey cake for Duke. The “frosting” is simply plain yogurt; both he and Einstein gobbled it up in no time, so I’m pretty sure it was a big hit :)
I’m off to snuggle that big fur ball for the rest of the day! :)
Coconut-Honey Doggie Cake
An easy doggie cake made with only a handful of ingredients and perfect for celebrating your pup’s birthday!
- 3 tablespoons refined coconut oil, melted
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 3 eggs
- 1¾ cup (248 grams) all-purpose flour
- Yogurt, for frosting
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two 7-ounce ramekins; set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, honey and eggs. Stir in the flour until totally absorbed.
- Divide the batter between the two ramekins and baked until lightly browned and firm when pressed in the center, 15 to 20 minutes.
- Cool in the ramekins, then remove them and fill and frost with plain yogurt. Serve!
Note: The original recipe called for almond flour, which would be healthier for your pup, but I avoid baking with nut products at home with Joseph. So feel free to substitute almond flour for the all-purpose flour if you’d like! No need to adjust anything else.
