It’s my birthday today. So, of course the pups get their own dog-friendly cake!
I found this recipe on my fave DIY dog blog Pretty Fluffy — it’s just so photogenic and sounded delicious. It’s even grain-free as it’s made with almond flour and full of clean ingredients like coconut oil, strawberries + honey.
I really like to cook. I have several homemade dog food recipes on here and love cooking but BAKING? I just suck at it. Hate the measuring, hate the exactness of it. When I cook, I like to throw around things with a flourish like #saltbae.
So, this is what the cake is suppose to look like; courtesy of Pretty Fluffy:
Well, let’s continue…
The ingredients are relatively simple:
1 3/4 cup almond flour
1 – 2 TBS honey (preferably raw)
2-3 TBS melted coconut oil
1 cup chopped organic strawberries + couple of extra for topping
1 cup of organic plain yogurt
2-3 TBS almond butter or organic peanut butter
Preheated the oven to 350 degrees and greased the ramekins like the recipe said to…
Blended up all the ingredients in my handy Nutribullet.
Bake for 20 minutes. Ta da! Adorable little strawberry cakes.
This happened (this ALWAYS happens).
They didn’t just slide out of the ramekins. I had to scoop them out with a spoon, crumbling the bottom in the process. The photo actually doesn’t look that bad now that I’m looking at it but they were lumpy and not as pretty as the original photos. I will never be master baker. lol.
Salvaged what I could and of course, the dogs didn’t care. They loved these little gluten free treats and they smelled so good!
