I try to make a homemade cake for the dogs birthday’s each year, but there have been a couple times life has gotten in the way and they have ended up with store bought. When it is homemade, my default recipe for the last 4 years has been this peanut butter delight cake. Many of the dog cake recipes I found were meat based and I like that this one uses regular baking ingredients and is closer to a cake I would enjoy myself. It smells great cooking and I don’t have to worry when the kids try to get in on the action!
Peanut Butter Delight Dog Birthday Cake
1 cup white or whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup shredded carrots
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup honey
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C)
Mix together flour and baking soda. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour into a small round pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.
8 oz cream cheese
1 container of baby food bananas
1 tsp cinnamon
Mix ingredients together and use to frost cake.
Our pups have enjoyed this recipe as both a full cake and cupcakes. I have baked it in a loaf pan and cut it out to look like a bone and I have done it as a small round and added several cupcakes to create a paw print shape.
It doesn’t matter how it is decorated, my dogs love it!

If u do purchase a cake from the store, what kind does it need to be? I am going to attempt to make one myself but im not the best baker 🙂
The good thing about baking for dogs is they don’t notice if the cake is undercooked or too dry. :). You could also easily do the recipe as cupcakes/muffins if that makes things easier. If not, I have bought fancy dog cookies from our local doggy bakery, or used these Pup-PIE’s from Petsmart for our doggy birthday celebrations. http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12682586&f=PAD%2FpsNotAvailInCA%2FNo
Hi first of all this is such a cool idea I’m making my parents pup this exact cake next week but I was wondering did you use regular sprinkles?? I do think want to put something he shouldn’t be eating.
Hi Grace, I did use regular sprinkles. I have seen them used on other bought baked goods aimed towards dogs and I figured they weren’t actually consuming enough to do any harm. I have also used carob chips in the past which would be a dog friendly option. Hope this helps!
