Pumpkin Dog Birthday Cake

My daughter’s labs turned 4 on Christmas Day so we celebrated their birthday on the day after Christmas with this little beauty. I have to say that it smelled pretty good while baking and I don’t even like pumpkin. The boys gobbled it down so I’d say it was a success.


1 1/2 cup wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 cup pumpkin puree

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/4 cup natural peanut butter

2 eggs

1 – 2 tablespoons honey


1 cup unsweetened Greek yogurt

1/2 cup smooth natural peanut butter

1 – 2 tablespoons honey

dog biscuits for decorations

1 For the cake, preheat oven to 350. Spray two 6″ round cake pans with cooking spray.

2 Whisk together flour, baking soda, and baking powder.

3 Beat pumpkin, applesauce, peanut butter, eggs, and honey until well combined. Slowly add flour mixture and beat just until combined.

4 Pour into pans and bake 30 – 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely.

5 For the frosting, beat all frosting ingredients until well combined. Frost the cakes and decorate with dog biscuits.
