BELLA’S BIRTHDAY CAKE
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOKING TIME: 30 minutes
EATING TIME: >30 seconds (for golden retrievers)
1 cup wholemeal flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup water
2 tsp wholemeal flour
Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees fan-forced, and prepare the base of two small cake tins with some baking paper
In a mixing bowl, add the flour, grated carrot, eggs, baking powder, and water until well combined. Add a little more water if the mixture is too dry, then pour this into the cake tins, and cook for 25 minutes, or until set.
Remove from oven to cool when done.
Meanwhile, mash the banana, and 2 teaspoons of flour in a separate bowl. Separate this into three bowls, and add different coloured dye to each bowl. This will be your ‘icing.’
Cut each cake into two, or three layers, and add the banana icing in between each piece of cake, stacking it up onto a plate. Serve to your doggo when ready.
This cake is for my favourite golden retriever for her twelfth birthday. She is the absolute best.
So, about the cake. It is doggo friendly, mostly being made of carrot and banana- although feel free to add some peanut butter if you wish, it is just one ingredient I tend to avoid in our home if possible. Also a side note, you will probably (definitely) get a few weird looks when you openly admit to making a cake for your pup, but that’s the challenge of true love for you. Enjoy. x
