Birthday Cake Recipe

Hello everyone, the Mom here! I've had a lot of requests for the recipe for the birthday cake I always make for Chewy & Lilibell's birthday, so here it is! This cake is very safe for dogs because it has no sugar or salt in it.

Peanut Butter Carrot Cake
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter (I use the all natural smooth peanut butter, the brand is Teddy's)
1/4 vegetable oil
1 cup shredded carrots (approximately 2 carrots)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg

Mix flour and baking soda. Add remaining ingredients. Pour into greased 8" round cake pan (I use a small bone cake mold) and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Let cool.

For the frosting, I've used smooth peanut butter in the past. For Lilibell's cake, I used 1 small tub of fat free cream cheese and added enough strawberry jello powder to make it pink. Instead of cream cheese, you can use low fat yogurt mixed with jello.

Thanks for posting this! The only ingredient I wouldn't readily have available is the flour but that's easy enough to remedy!

Thanks, Nadine! I was going to ask for this, but thought it might be too difficult for baking challenged me. This looks pretty simple though.
