This was great that all ingredients were in the cupboard. I did add 1/2 cup of apple sauce too along with an extra 1/2 cup of flour since I know my dog loves apple sauce.

Our dog, Boomer, turned 11 so we wanted to make him a cake. I chose this recipe because it had easily available ingredients that I didn't mind cooking with my dishes - no dogfood in my muffin tins thanks! They turned out great! I did make them muffin sized but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Boomer LOVED them! It is amazing how he seemed to know we made them just for him! We called them his birthday "pupcakes". Thanks for the great recipe!

Great recipe! I cut the oil tremendously and replaced with turkey baby food to cut the fat. I melted some peanut butter and dripped it over the top to "frost" it- fantastic! It makes more of a doughy consistency, so I was able to shape it on a cookie sheet instead of pouring it in a pan.

I put a bit more carrots and made this cake into cupcakes - iced each cupcake with cottage cheese mixed with yogourt and a mini Milkbone dog cookie on top. My four dogs truly enjoyed the party! ;-)

I made this recipe for my dog's birthday. I used star-shaped foil cupcake pans that I've had sitting in my pantry for ages. I followed another reviewer and made 1/2 of the cupcakes with chicken baby food, which I served to my dog, and the other half without. My dog gobbled up his birthday cupcake and begged for seconds, but he'll have to wait. I'll be cutting them up to serve as treats throughout the week. I took a nibble of the meatless version and it wasn't too bad either.

Our dogs absolutely loved this cake! I substituted the cooking oil for coconut oil and the wheat flour for rice flour. I also used a 9 inch round pan and baked at :50 for only 25 mins. The cake came out soft and moist .
