Baking a doggie birthday cake

This is completely random and hilarious, but I have been getting requests for the recipe I used to make Annabelle's half-birthday cake a couple of weeks ago.


Truth: It looked so good that I kind of wanted to try it.

I modified this peanut butter dog biscuit recipe from Pink Pistachio, omitting the coconut and the applesauce and replacing it with other ingredients (as you'll see). And I baked it in a regular round cake pan instead of rolling it out and cutting shapes because LAZY.

Peanut Butter Liver Dog Cake
Serves: 4-6 neighbourhood pups

  • Preheat the oven to 350F
  • Mix together 1 cup flour + 1/4 cup oats + 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • Add 1/4 cup of the powder at the bottom of the bag of freeze-dried liver treats (finally -- a use for that powder)
  • In a separate bowl, mix together 1/2 cup peanut butter + 1/2 cup milk + 1 egg + 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until combined
  • Scrape the batter into a round greased cake pan
  • Bake 20-25 minutes until golden and firm-ish
  • Transfer to a cooling rack
  • Don't eat it even though it looks like a delicious giant cookie
  • Once it's cool, ice it with plain ol' peanut butter
  • Garnish with cut-up cooked sausage. 
  • Bacon would also be a nice touch.
Annabelle loved it.
