Peanut Butter Banana Birthday Cake for Bailey's 6th Birthday!

Bailey's 6th Birthday Cake
Yesterday was Bailey's 6th birthday, and I have always made this birthday cake for her,  It is dog friendly recipe, with peanut butter and banana,  two of her two most favorite foods that we give her.  She is definitely a foodie, though.  She tried to steal baked goods cooling on the counter, so now I have to put them in the laundry room, out of her reach.

A little closer.....

Bailey takes a bite of the cake! Do you think that she likes it?
Bailey is also Princess of the Pillows and Blankets.  She loves anything soft and cuddly, because we have hardwood floors, throughout the house.

Is your dog OCD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?  Mine is! Check her out!  She lines up her buddies on the rug!

Bailey will be sharing her Birthday cake with the Boxer next door, Duncan, who is her buddy.  Even though Duncan is 70 lbs and Bailey is 30 lbs, she gives him a run for his money. and woofs at him all the time. Unfortunately, we don't have a picture of Duncan:(  Woof!

Peanut Butter Banana Cake Adapted from Dog Treat Recipe

1 cup whole wheat flour all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter, I used natural peanut butter
1 ripe, mashed banana
1 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C)
Mix together flour and baking soda. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour into a 8X8 pan sprayed with a nonstick spray for 40 minutes. 


  1. Bailey is gorgeous!!! I love the idea that you bake her a cake!

  2. Bailey is absolutely adorable. It must be a good dog's name since its ours too. Of course, ours is diabetic, so this is unfortunately out of the question for her. Don't tell her that you make it for your Bailey, ok? :)

  3. Sandra-Thanks for the comments. There thousands of dog treat recipes out there. I have even made her healthy dog bones.

    Christiane- I won't tell your Bailey, if you don't. I do have a healthy dog bone recipe with only whole wheat flour, baking powder, natural peanut butter, like Smuckers, that doesn't have sugar, and skim milk. I'll e-mail it to you.

  4. Now that is the sweetest post ever. My girlfriend does this for her cats and we have so much fun at her little birthday parties. I love it!

  5. Becky that is too funny! I love it and what a sweet dog! My kids are begging for one -

    Love that you made a cake for your dog. I just love it! I am going to pass on the recipe to my sister who has a dog - Very sweet Becky! -

  6. Yesterday was my Lucy's 9th birthday, she would have loved to been at the party and enjoyed that cake!

  7. Brandie-Birthday parties are fun, even if they are for your pets:)

    Megan- One good thing about Cock-a-poos, is that they don't shed. Any dog bred with a poodle, typically doesn't shed, which is a good thing.

    Chef Dennis- It's not too late to make a cake for Lucy. This cake is so easy! or I can send you one for Lucy:)

  8. I feel obligated to do this for our puppies! What a great idea. They would LOVE it! Since I started blogging they've gotten so many treats [aka major fails from the kitchen]... but never anything specifically made FOR them. How sweet!

  9. The dynamic duo: Peanut butter and banana... Lucky dog!

  10. Leanne-I know what you mean by things falling on the kitchen floor. Whenever we cook in the kitchen, Bailey sits and looks at the floor, because inevitably, something will fall.

    Brooks-She loves the peanut butter and banana:)

  11. Bailey looks super cute! She sure had a treat on her b'day!

  12. Awww, so cute! Bailey is adorable!

  13. Suchitra- She loves that cake!

    Natasha-thank you for your comments.

  14. Happy Birthday to your sweet pooch! My parents adopted the most precious dog last year, and I know they would love to make this for his 3rd birthday.Thank you for sharing your tasty dog treat with me. I hope you had a great day...may tomorrow be even better!

  15. Awwww....happy birthday to bailey. It's so sweet that you made her a birthday cake.

  16. Monet- Bailey likes this cake and we share it with the Boxer next door. Have great Wednesday!

    Abeer- Thanks for your comments!

  17. But what really make these cakes unique are the colorful themes we add to them. Just tell us your child’s favorite cartoon character, sport, or hobby and we’ll make a cake to they’ll love. best cakes in birmingham al
