Peanut Butter Pumpkin Puppy Cake


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

Ingredients
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup peanut butter, natural
1/8 cup vegetable oil
½ cup applesauce
½ cup pumpkin puree
1 egg

For the Frosting
½ cup greek yogurt, plain
dog treats for decoration

 
Directions

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!
