Dog Friendly Carrot Cake

I actually wrote this post before my holiday to China and scheduled for it to be posted a while back but things did not go as planned! Anyway, here it is...

This one is for all the doggy lovers out there! So our dogs, two super adorbs malshis, will be celebrating their birthdays on the 26th of March, but as some of the family will be away then, we decided to push forward the partay! They don't actually share the same birthday, but we have chosen a date in between both their birthdays to celebrate (if they were human we'd be horrible parents). I digress, the point is, we baked them a dog friendly carrot cake! We have used a recipe which we found on

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 carrot (shredded)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda


1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celcius (fan forced oven). Measure out peanut butter, vegetable oil, vanilla essence, cinnamon powder and honey into a mixing bowl and mix well.

2. In another bowl sift the flour and baking powder.

3. Mix in the egg into the wet ingredients from step 1.

4. Add the shredded carrots into the wet ingredients and mix well.

5. Gradually add the flour and mix well.

6. Pour mixture into the cake mould. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes.

After baking allow the cake to cool. We decided to ice the cupcake with a little bit of peanut butter, which the dogs absolutely love.

So there you have it. This is a super simple and easy recipe to make and the dogs were begging at our feet as soon as we pulled it out of the oven. We did add the cinnamon powder (safe for dogs in small amounts) which was not part of the original recipe and found that it made the aroma even more irresistible. Another change I would make next time is to leave out the oil altogether as the store bought peanut butter provided more than enough oil to the mix. The best part of this recipe is that it's also very irresistible to humans!
