Why You'll Love This Recipe
You will love this dog friendly birthday cake and so will your pup! Our dogs live such short lives compared to us, so every minute is worth celebrating. Especially their birthdays! This Blueberry Peanut Butter Dog Cake is the perfect dog friendly cake to celebrate with.
This easy peanut butter cake bakes up nice and fluffy in a 6-inch cake pan (discount code, use MIMIBAKES). I top it with plain peanut butter, because that is just like frosting! Then I add a bunch of top fresh blueberries on top. Blueberries are so good for your dogs and John John loves them!
Blueberries have antioxidants, nutrients, and more that your dog can benefit with. And they make an amazing cake topping, which makes this dog friendly birthday cake even better!

I can't believe John John is a year old! He would not wear the hat, not even for a second, haha! But, he absolutely loved this cake! We cut it up into slices and will be delivering birthday cake slices to all his friends in the neighborhood tomorrow. You can give this dog friendly birthday cake to your pup as a dessert, or you can even sprinkle leftovers on top of their food. I think John John will be having birthday cake for breakfast tomorrow too!
Stand Mixer, hand mixer, or a bowl with a whisk – this cake is so easy, any option will work!
How to a Make Blueberry Peanut Butter Dog Cake
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 6-inch cake pan with parchment paper.
n the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or using a hand mixer or bowl with a whisk), add the peanut butter, honey, egg, and coconut milk and mix together. Add the flour and baking powder and mix together.
Transfer to the prepared baking pan and bake for 27 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely in the cake pan. (Make sure to check the Notes at the bottom of the recipe if you are baking at high altitude).
Remove the cake from the pan and top it with peanut butter. Add fresh blueberries on top.
Is peanut butter good for dogs?
Peanut butter is a safe ingredient for dogs in moderation and should be treated like a treat. Always make sure you are buying organic peanut butter with no added sugars, flavors, and especially no xylitol. While sugars and flavors are not good for dogs, xylitol is extremely toxic for dogs! I always give John John the peanut butter we eat, which just has two ingredients (organic peanuts and sea salt).
Are blueberries good for dogs?
Yes! Blueberries are a superfood for your dog, just like they are for you! Blueberries have tons of antioxidants and they can also help improve brain function and memory in dogs (um, yes please, for better listening skills!).
Can I top this with something else?
If your dog is not a fan of blueberries, you can also top this cake with strawberries, apples, or bananas.
Why Organic for Your Dog?
You may be wondering why you should buy organic food for your dog. It's the same reasons that you should buy organic food for yourself. Your dog's health is important, just like yours. So, treating them right with organic ingredients will benefit their long term health.
And organic ingredients are much healthier for your dog to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients! And that counts for your pup too!
