Healthy Birthday Cake for Dogs

For those who don’t know me as yet – I LOVE my dogs. I’m one of them crazy mom’s that make a fuss over birthday’s each year. To me, they are not just my dogs, but my own family! So this is Bailey’s Birthday cake for his 3rd birthday!

 

  • 2 1/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup naturally refined coconut oil -liquid (or olive oil)

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or organic milk

Toppings:

1 cup plain Greek yoghurt or chilled coconut cream with 1 tbsp honey

 

 

    1. Preheat oven 180C. Line a small cake tin (20 cms) with parchment paper.
    2. In a small bowl, sift your chickpea flour, cinnamon, and baking powder/soda together. In another bowl, whisk your milk, oil, lemon juice together.
    3. Pour your wet ingredients into your flour batter. Fold in 1/2 mashed strawberries and honey. Pour into the cake tin. Bake for 30 minutes or until centre comes out clean with a toothpick.
