BEST Dog Safe Birthday Cake | High Protein

Updated: Mar 21

Our precious babies both just turned 8! If you are a pet parent and a dog lover like us, you know that each year in the life of a dog is precious time borrowed from above. We wanted to celebrate their 8 years with a super special birthday cake. This dog safe cake is grain free, high in protein, species appropriate, and is a major crowd pleaser. The ingredients are full of nutrition and are fantastic for the wellness of your furry fluffy friend. We hope your pup has many more snuggles, wags, and moments in the sunshine.



Meatloaf Cake with Yogurt Frosting


Cake Loaf Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds ground beef

  • 2 whole eggs

  • 1 grated peeled apple

  • 1 grated carrot

  • 3 tbs beef gelatin

  • 1 tsp turmeric (optional)


Directions:

  1. Place your ground beef into a bowl.

  2. Add your 2 whole adds and give a mix.

  3. Grate the apple and carrot into your mixture.

  4. Add 3 Tablespoons of beef gelatin.

  5. Add your optional turmeric.

  6. Mix everything together thoroughly.

  7. Lay parchment paper in your pan to make the loaf easier to remove after cooking.

  8. Add your meatloaf mixture to your pan or tin.

  9. You can use a loaf pan, cake pan, muffin tins, or a casserole dish, depending on the shape you are going for. I use a loaf pan.

  10. Place your meatloaf into your oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-30 minutes depending on how done your dog likes the meat. I bake mine for 20 mins.

  11. When the loaf is done cooking, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

  12. To remove the loaf. I cover my loaf pan with my cake plate, and then I flip the loaf pan so that the meatloaf gently flips onto the plate and out of the pan. You can also lift the parchment paper.

  13. Peel off your parchment paper.

  14. Once the meatloaf is fully cooled, add your yogurt frosting.



Frosting Ingredients:

  • Greek Yogurt

  • Pumpkin Puree

  • Tapioca Starch or Arrowroot

  • Milk, Kefir, or Coconut Milk

  • Berry Powder (optional)


Directions:

  1. Add your yogurt and pumpkin puree to a mixing bowl, stir.

  2. Add your tapioca starch or arrowroot. Mix well.

  3. Slowly add your milk until you reach a smooth frosting consistency. (you don't want the frosting runny or too thick and chunky - you want it fluffy and smooth).

  4. Add optional berry powder, mix well.

  5. Chill your yogurt in the fridge for at least 15 minutes to allow it to thicken and set.


Smooth your frosting onto your cooled meatloaf.

I like to then add some more berry powder on top and a crumble topping.

The crumble topping is simply any dried ingredient chopped or coarsely blended. I also like to add fresh fruit on the top.





We hope you and your pup(s) have a pawfect day!
