Do you bake a puppy cake for a dog’s birthday? This year our pup did not have her traditional dog birthday. I know it sounds crazy but I usually make a healthy dog birthday cake or dog cupcake recipe. 

Give them to some of the neighbor dogs on her birthday which also happens to be National Dog Day. Don’t be shy to throw an inexpensive Birthday for your dog.


Knowing that most of her pup friends were out of town this year, I was thrilled to find an Impossibly Easy Four Ingredient Dog Birthday Cake for One.

As much as Chloe would like to enjoy a piece of a healthy dog cake daily, this was the best option to keep her weight in check.


If your dog has grain issues, this is a grain free dog cake recipe!

Four Ingredient Dog Birthday Cake for One

For this super simple single dog cake recipe, you only need four ingredients. Most likely you have everything in your cupboard already. The most challenging part of this recipe is grating the apple.

Healthy Dog Ingredients:

  • egg
  •  peanut butter (DO NOT use low sugar varieties)
  • Apple
  • baking powder
  •  Zero Fat Plain Greek yogurt for frosting 
  • Dog Treats (Optional and can be grain free)

Benefits of EGG FOR DOGS:

Eggs are perfectly safe for dogs, Eggs are a great source of nutrition for your canine companion. They are high in protein, fatty acids, vitamins, and fatty acids that help support your dog inside and out.


 Regular peanut butter is safe to give your dog as a treat. Just make sure to avoid peanut butter with Xylitol, a sugar substitute found in lower or sugar-free products.  We have experience Xylitol poisoning it is not pretty. 

Look for simple ingredients like peanut butter with just peanuts!


Apples are a great source of vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium, and antioxidants. They’re chock full of fiber, especially in the peels, which helps dogs maintain a healthy weight while assisting with their digestion.  Just avoid feeding them the seeds.


Yes, dogs can eat yogurt. It’s an excellent source of protein, calcium, and probiotics, all of which boost their immune system and relieve them of stomach issues.  Some dogs can not tolerate dairy, so just use moderately if you have not given this to your dog without a reaction. 




That was a joke people,  not a hard task, my 11-year-old did this for us. This is also a grain-free recipe in case your dog has any allergies.

While this grain free dog cake would be easily devoured like this,  my son and I found some fun alphabet dog treats and could not resist buying her name for a topping.
