Banana Peanut Butter Dog Cake Recipe


This is the recipe for the cake I made for Gizmo and Gadget’s 5th Birthday. Just as a note, I think dog cake recipe I made last year came out better, except I like the icing on this one a lot better. It’s essentially peanut butter buttercream, and who doesn’t like that?

This recipe is relatively easy to make. The only part to note is that it does take a relatively long time to bake and cool, so plan ahead. And don’t ice until it’s all the way cooled down!!

For cake:
2 cups water
2 ripe bananas
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour (whole wheat preferred, but I used all purpose
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1 egg
2 tablespoons honey

For icings:
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup vegetable shortening (or butter)
food coloring
enough powdered sugar

Heat oven to 350.
Mix cake ingredients.
Place in one 8 or 9 inch cake pan.
Cook for 60 to 75 minutes.
For icing, mix cottage cheese and if you’re feeling nice, a bit of powdered sugar and food coloring in a food processor until smooth. Use this to top the cake. Then, take the peanut butter and shortening or butter (at room temp) and mix really well. Then, add powdered sugar a little bit at a time, incorporating it into the icing completely before adding more. Keep adding until it’s sweet enough for your birthday dog.

Cover the cake with the cottage cheese icing, then decorate with the peanut butter icing. The peanut butter icing has extra sugar in it, so don’t use too much. However, this is a treat, so you be the judge.

To decorate, you can put the icing in a ziplock bag with a corner cut off, and use that as a piping bag. If you have icing piping nozzles, then you can do some really nice decorations with this icing. If you NEED a piping bag and nozzles, you can get them from Amazon relatively cheaply.
