Bella is 1! I can’t believe it! In celebration I decided to bake her a dog friendly birthday cake, I have shared the recipe below. I’m really proud of how far she has come along in the last year, her behaviour has improved massively and she has such a great personality. She actually manages to make me laugh on a daily basis; I can no longer picture life without her in it. (Taking it over)
So, for the cake you will need the below:
65g peanut butter
60ml vegetable oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
135g grated carrots
120g wholemeal flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
First step set the oven to 180°C and grease a cake tin
Second step, mix the egg, peanut butter, oil, vanilla and honey together in a bowl
Next, add the grated carrot and mix well.
Then sift the flour with the bicarbonate of soda into the bowl and fold into the mixture. I found that the wholemeal flour didn’t sift very well; I had to use a spoon to get it through the sieve.
Lastly spoon into the tin and bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
This is the first time I have made a cake like this, and I wasn’t sure it was quite done after 40 minutes, but I think it was. My cake tin was a bit too big for this mix, so when it had cooled down I cut it into the shape of a bone.
I gave Bella a little taste of the off-cuts and she seemed to enjoy it. To be honest, she will eat pretty much anything. The only thing I’ve found that she won’t eat is lettuce. There is a little video on my YouTube channel of it if you want to check that out.
Here is the finished cake 🙂
If you make this please comment and let me know if your dog likes it. I’ll be spoiling Bella on her birthday with some new toys, a bone to eat and of course a little bit of cake.

She is so cute!
