Recipe: Dog Friendly Cake with Beef


I don't know about you, but I don't need a reason to spoil my dogs. It's especially fun to make their birthday or adoption day extra special! This dog friendly cake recipe is always a crowd pleaser with my pack, and I'm sure your canine companion will love it too.

Buying your pup a special gift or a store bought snack is a great option too, but I really enjoy making my pets a homemade treat. I can use some of their favorite ingredients to ensure they get a treat that I know they'll love.

If beef isn't your pup's favorite flavor, no worries! You could use ground chicken, turkey, venison or any other protein source that your dog enjoys. If carrots and peas aren't appealing to your pooch, try using green beans, broccoli or pumpkin instead. There are many dog-friendly substitutions that you could use to make this cake recipe suitable for your dog.
