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! :)
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.
