Happy Birthday Ellie!
I can't believe Ellie is 4 years old today, I remember when she was just a puppy so that's why I made her a peanut butter pumpkin puppy cake. I modified this recipe from the cake I made for Buddy's 10th birthday. I know these dogs are spoiled! Ellie is so lucky today because she is also featured on Pretty Fluffy's Daily Fluffy - http://prettyfluffy.com/2012/08/daily-fluffy-look-at-this-mess/! How cool is that? Ellie sure can be a troublemaker sometimes but I love her anyway (and so does her brother Buddy).
Peanut Butter Pumpkin Puppy Cake
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup peanut butter, natural
1/8 cup vegetable oil
½ cup applesauce
½ cup pumpkin puree
For the Frosting
½ cup greek yogurt, plain
dog treats for decoration
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
In a bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda.
Add in the remaining ingredients and mix with a spatula.
Pour batter into loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack. (I cut the cake into the shape of a dog bone with a serrated knife.)
Cool completely before frosting.
Frost with plain greek yogurt. Top with dog treats.
Ellie loves it and so does Buddy!
Mmmmmm! Happy 4th Birthday Ellie!
