This recipe won’t appeal to everyone, and I’m sure I’ll get some stick from Bill for this, but it was my furry friend’s 5th birthday recently and I though she deserved a treat. But since this is a food website, I though I would have a go at making a dog birthday cake, that was suitable for humans as well as dogs. Given that dogs, shouldn’t eat chocolate, sugar, salt and a list of other things, this would have to be quite a savoury cake.
This cake apart for the addition of chicken, is a little like carrot cake, without the sugar, so I’m sure it’s very healthy. It tasted a little bland for humans, but nothing that a little sprinkling of salt won’t fix, but to dogs, you’ll have to stop them guzzling it all down in one go.
