Make your dog this flavorful peanut butter carrot cake on a special occasion, such as a doggy birthday or National Dog Day (August 26)!

Note: This is a user-submitted recipe and has not been tested. It is meant to be used as an occasional treat for dogs (and humans) only. Please check your pet’s dietary and nutritional requirements with a veterinarian before using this recipe. 

Note the * and **  from The Old Farmer’s Almanac below.


1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup peanut butter* 
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 cup shredded carrots
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon honey** 
1 egg


Mix flour and baking soda. Add remaining ingredients. Pour into greased 8” round cake pan and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Let cool. Puree cottage cheese in blender for icing. Decorate with more peanut butter and carrots.


Organic or raw peanut butter is best, because others have sugars. Be sure the brand does not contain the sweetener xylitol, which is toxic to dogs.
Do not give this ingredient to puppies.
