Doggy Birthday Cake

Even pets need special treats on their birthdays!  Today we celebrated Oliver's sixth birthday so my sous chef and I baked him a cake. Oliver loved it!!

Doggy Birthday Cake with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting


1 egg
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda

1/4 cup peanut butter
2 oz cream cheese
2-4 tbsp water (I had opened chicken stock in the fridge so I used that)

1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 6-9 inch cake pan.  In a large bowl, mix together egg, oil, honey, peanut butter and vanilla until well blended.

2.  Add in the carrots, flour and baking soda and stir until combined.  The batter will be very dense and heavy.  Spread batter into prepared cake pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.
3.  Remove from oven and cool in pan for 10 minutes.  Move to a wire rack to continue cooling to room temperature.  While the cake is cooling, whip the peanut butter and cream cheese adding in liquid as needed.  Frost, serve and enjoy!
