    Drake's birthday is coming up so I was looking for recipes for a doggie cake. I thought it might be fun to have a thread for pet recipes. Please feel free to post any goodies you make for your four legged friends.
    My friend gave my this one.

    Banana Honey Cake

    Cake
    2 cups water
    2 medium bananas, mashed
    1/8 teaspoon vanilla
    3 cups whole wheat flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1 egg
    2 tablespoons honey

    Frosting
    12 ounces fat free cream cheese, room temp
    3 teaspoons cinnamon
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 teaspoon honey


    Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl combine water, bananas, vanilla, egg and honey. Then add whole wheat flour and baking powder. Mix well.
    Pour mixture into an 8 inch cake pan sprayed with nonstick spray.
    Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out dry.
    Cinnamon Frosting: In bowl combine ingredients and mix well. Frost cake when completely cool.
    You can pipe different designs by using the carob frosting for color contrast. To make carob frosting, replace cinnamon with the same amount of carob powder.

    Yum, that looks really good Genny!

    Here's one I pulled out of one of the dog newsletters I get.

    Liver Brownies


    2 lbs chicken livers
    2 Cups corn meal
    2 Cups wheat germ
    2 eggs
    1/2 Cups dried parsley

    Liquefy livers in food processor, pour into mixing bowl and add other ingredients. Mix until smooth like a brownie batter. Spread on a cookie sheet (1/2 sheet cake size) (I use parchment paper to line the pan) until it's evenly spread about 1/3 inch thick. Bake at 350 F for about 35 minutes. When cool cut into squares, or whatever shapes you prefer. I keep them in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator.

    I guess they are more gluten free that truly grain free, but they do not bother Archer, who has a really sensitive tummy :)

    This was in an email newsletter I got form the AKC, so I thought Id pass it along:

    Pumpkin Peanut Butter Biscuits
    • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat or barley flour
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 cup canned pumpkin
    • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
    2. Stir dry ingredients in medium bowl. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, pumpkin, and peanut butter. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and knead thoroughly. Dough should be dry and stiff; add small amounts of water as needed to make it workable. (If dough is too sticky, add small amounts of flour.) Roll dough into half-inch thickness and cut into half-inch pieces, using knife or cookie cutters
    3. Bake about 40 minutes, or until hard and dry.

    1 bananas, ripe, mashed or 1 (5 ounce) jar baby food

    Sweet! Wonder if it could be made without the dairy. I'll have to start experimenting with dairy free.

    Banana & Peanut Butter Dog Cake

    Ingredients:
    • 1/2 cup canola oil
    • 1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened
    • 1/4 cup molasses, blackstrap
    • 1/4 cup peanut butter
    • 4 eggs
    • 2 cups whole wheat flour
    • 2 tsp baking soda
    • 2 tsp cinnamon
    • 2 ripe bananas, mashed

    Instructions:
    1. Preheat oven to 350° F
    2. In a stand mixer bowl, add the canola oil, applesauce and molasses.
    3. On low-medium speed, thoroughly combine.
    4. Add the peanut butter, and mix until combined.
    5. Add the eggs one at a time, until all combined.
    6. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and cinnamon.
    7. Using the lowest setting, or the stir setting on your mixer, slowly add the dry ingredients.
    8. In a small bowl, mash the bananas.
    9. Take the mixing bowl off the stand. Fold in the mashed bananas, making sure they are well incorporated.
    10. Using a baking spray with flour, generously spray each 8 inch pan.
    11. Divide the batter between both pans.
    12. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes clean. Rotate the pans on the racks half way through the baking time.
    13. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
    14. Remove the cakes from the pan, and cool completely on a wire rack.

    Storing - This dog cake recipe will keep fresh in the refrigerator for about 5 days. Freeze the cakes for up to 3 months. If you choose to freeze the cakes, wrap each one individually with plastic wrap. Then wrap each one with heavy duty aluminum foil. Then place each one in a labeled freezer bag. It may seem like a lot of work, but it will keep the dog cakes delicate texture fresh longer.
    Yield - Two 8 inch round cakes.
