The King's Doggie Birthday Cake



A birthday cake fit for The King! Elvis Presley's favorite meal was peanut butter and banana sandwiches, which also happens to be great ingredients for your furry friend. This dog cake is chock full of healthy and yummy ingredients for your dog, including applesauce, oats, egg and honey. It comes together and bakes up just like any other cake, but is perfect for your favorite dog. The frosting is made with peanut butter and plain Greek yogurt. Don't forget to top it all off with crumbles of their favorite treatsYou can bake it in a small 8" round or square pan, or get creative and buy a bone-shaped cake pan at your local hobby/baking supply store.


For Cake:

  • 1/4 cup natural unsalted peanut butter (Be absolutely sure that you're not using sugar-free or "lite" peanut butter that has artificial sweeteners, particularly xylitol, as these substances are incredibly toxic to dogs.)

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

  • 1/2 cup banana, mashed

  • 1/3 cup honey

  • 2 large cage-free eggs

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup quick cooking oats

  • 2 TBSN Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 cup of dog's favorite treats, crumbled

For Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

  • 1/4 cup natural unsalted peanut butter (Be absolutely sure that you're not using sugar-free or "lite" peanut butter that has artificial sweeteners, particularly xylitol, as these substances are incredibly toxic to dogs.)


Large mixing bowl, mixing spoon, measuring spoons, measuring cups, 8-10" baking pan Prep: 20 minutes Cook: 40 minutes Ready: 1 hour 15 minutes Serves: one 12” x 6” cake Before you handle any food, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. Clean your kitchen work area and pull back your hair or wear a cap. You want to avoid contaminating your meal with harmful bacteria that could cause food illness. To make The King's Doggie Birthday Cake:


1. In a large bowl, mix together peanut butter, applesauce, honey, olive oil, and banana.



2. Beat the eggs and add to the mixture. Blend well to remove all the lumps.

3. Add the flour and baking soda and stir into the mixture.


4. Add oats and stir to combine.

5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

6. Use cooking spray to coat a small cake pan.


7. Spoon the dough into the cake pan and bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes in preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the cake springs back when pressed lightly.


8. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Use a knife to cut the circles in half, then one half quartered. Trim edges and connect pieces to form a bone shape.


9. To make the frosting, mix Greek yogurt and peanut butter until well combined. I don't recommend using food coloring to make the frosting different colors. Artificial food coloring could be harmful to some dogs, as well as stain their fur if they are messy eaters.


10. After completely cooled, spread frosting over the cake. Refrigerate before serving.


11. Sprinkle crumbled preferred dog treats on top of frosting.


Unsweetened natural applesauce is a good source of fiber as well as vitamin A and C.

Bananas. in moderation, are a great low-calorie treat for dogs. They’re high in potassium, vitamins, biotin, fiber, and copper. They are low in cholesterol and sodium, but because of their high sugar content, bananas should not be part of your dog’s regular diet.

Eggs add protein and are also a source of easily digestible riboflavin and selenium, making them a healthy snack. Eggs are safe for dogs as long as they are fully cooked. Cooked eggs are a wonderful source of protein and can help an upset stomach. However, eating raw egg whites can give dogs biotin deficiency, so be sure to cook the eggs all the way through before giving them to your pet.

Honey is packed with countless nutrients such as vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K, potassium, calcium, magnesium, copper, and antioxidants. Feeding dogs small amounts of honey can help with allergies because it introduces small amounts of pollen to their systems, building up immunity to allergens in your area. I

Oats are a great source of soluble fiber, which can be especially beneficial to senior dogs with bowel irregularity issues. It is also a great alternate grain for dogs allergic to wheat. Make sure to cook oatmeal before serving it to your dog.

Natural unsalted Peanut Butter is a good source of protein an d contains heart healthy fats, vitamin B, niacin, and vitamin E. Be absolutely sure that you're not using sugar-free or "lite" peanut butter that has artificial sweeteners, particularly xylitol, as these substances are incredibly toxic to dogs.

Yogurt is high in calcium and protein. Make sure to only choose yogurts that do not contain artificial sweeteners or added sugars. Yogurts with active bacteria can act as a probiotic and are good for your dog’s digestive system.
