Dog Birthday Cake

For Summer's birthday yesterday I made a gluten free dog birthday cake. It was peanut butter and sweet potato and the dogs ate it up! I'm also happy to report that it did not bother any of the dogs stomachs. Just be sure you only give them a few bites.

Here is the recipe!

Doggie Birthday Cake –

Peanut Butter and Sweet Potato

¼ cup tapioca
¼ cup cornmeal
½ cup white rice
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ cup peanut butter
1 cup sweet potatos
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup water (or honey)
2 eggs

Mix all the dry ingredients with a whisk. Then add all the wet ingredients and use a mixer on high speed to blend all ingredients until smooth.

Put into a small cake pan (one round 8" or small brownie pan) and bake for 30 min at 350 degrees.

Let cool for 5 min before removing from pan. I used a small amount of yogurt to 'ice' the cake (barely 1/3 cup). I would be careful with yogurt as many dogs are lactose intolerant so this could upset their stomach. Peanut Butter blended with banana could be another choice as an icing.

The dogs spent the rest of the afternoon lazing in the warm sun...the girls at least. Poor Jake was not left any room!

So I would love to hear your comments and feedback! What do you do for your pets on their birthday? Would you throw them a party?
