Happy Birthday Blue!

As you can read on my profile, I am the adopted mother of a pit bull. My big, gentle baby boy - Blue - turned 2-years-old on Jan. 1, 2010.

Style just isn’t what you wear or how you decorate; it is also about how you live.

So, my daughters and I decided to celebrate Blue’s birthday with style. We made him his very own doggie birthday cake.

I searched online for a doggie treat recipe that consisted of the ingredients I already had in my cabinets.

I found a recipe for Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits, and I changed a few ingredients to make it a doggie birthday cake.

Blue’s Peanut Butter Doggie Birthday Cake

  • 1 ½ cups water
  • ½ cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups all purpose baking mix
  • ½ cup of Jiffy corn muffin mix
  • ½ cup oats
  1. First blend water, oil, eggs and vanilla with mixer for 30 seconds.
  2. Whisk peanut butter, baking mix, corn muffin mix and oats together. Will be lumpy from peanut butter.
  3. Mix wet and dry ingredients together and blend with mixer.
  4. Pour mixture into cake pan and bake for 20 min. at 400 degrees. (I actually had to bake my five minutes longer.)
  5. Let cool and then frost with peanut butter.

Blue loved it! He even licked up all the crumbs off the floor. Just make sure to give your dog a big bowl of water to go with his cake - the peanut butter sticks to the roof of their mouth.

A perfect, fast and easy treat for your favorite four-legged pooch!
