Our dogs, Chipper and Champ, are treated like family. I’m picky about what we feed them, so I made sure that all of the ingredients in this puppy birthday cake were dog-friendly. There are four simple ingredients, just enough to hold the cake together and make it delicious for your four-legged friends!

Ingredients For Homemade Dog Birthday Cake

  • Egg. This will hold the cake together and are a great source of nutrition for dogs.
  • Peanut Butter. This will add flavor to the cake (what dog doesn’t love peanut butter?) and provides healthy fats.
  • Apple. Apples also add flavor and are a good source of vitamins. Just be sure to remove the core and seeds completely.
  • Baking Powder. If used in moderation and diluted, as it is in this recipe, baking powder is perfectly safe for dogs. It will help the cake to rise, but you are welcome to leave it out if you’d like.
