  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin pureé

  • Pumpkin Dog Birthday Cake
  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour two 6-inch round cake pans. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon. Set a side.
  • Gently whisk together the eggs, pumpkin, applesauce, and peanut butter until well combined. Add in the flour ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon to combine.
  • Divide batter evenly between the two prepared pans and bake 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes then invert cakes onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Use a cake leveler to cut the top off of one of the cakes. Spread a thin layer of yogurt on top of that layer and place the other layer on top.
  • In a small bowl with a spoon mix the rest of the yogurt and the peanut butter. Use a small spatula to frost a thin layer of it around the entire cake. Garnish with extra peanut butter and your dogs favorite treats!



    Pumpkin is about 15lbs and I let him lick the cake a little at a time. Obviously each dog is different! Make sure they have plenty of water available near by at all times!
