So what are dog birthday cakes made of?
The 3 ingredients for dog cakes primarily consist of flour, eggs, canola or olive oil
You truly can bake an individual dog birthday cake recipe without peanut butter using a 3 inch pan and those 3 ingredients. Here is an easy 3 ingredient dog cake recipe:
Preheat your oven for 350 degrees
Mix together 1 cup rice flour, 2 large eggs and 2 TBS of olive or canola oil and (I don't think of water as an ingredient) but add 1/4 cup. (If you want the cake to rise a little add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder but you can fill the cake pan to the top without it)
Spray olive oil or coconut oil in your pan and fill them with your batter
Bake for 18 minutes and let cool
If you want to add an extra ingredient you can turn your 3 ingredient dog cake into a 4 ingredient dog cake real easy by adding a tablespoon of peanut butter, pumpkin or mashed banana. Just stir one these extra ingredients into your batter prior to baking, you might want to add an extra tablespoon of water if the batter looks too thick.
Is frosting safe for dogs?
Yes, as long as you are careful in choosing the ingredients. Some people make mashed potatoes and spread them on top, even mashed banana frosting for dogs is nice. Cream cheese dog frosting is used a lot but it does contain a lot of fat. It would be better to mix peanut butter and bananas together instead.
