Puppy Time: Banana & Peanut Butter Dog Cake

Puppy Time: Banana & Peanut Butter Dog Cake | Diamond Dog Treat Recipes | Scoop.it

Banana & Peanut Butter Dog Cake   Dog cakes make any occasion a special one. But if your next dog party plans are small, or your dog is small in stature, you may want to consider making this dog cake recipe into mini muffins. That's what is pictured below. We like to have several dogs test our homemade dog treats, so we made little treats to pass out to all our taste testers.

Make this dog cake extra rich with the optional cream cheese frosting. See our tips below for more fun ways of decorating the cakes and dog muffins.
Banana & Peanut Butter Dog Cake Recipe  Mini Muffin Version     Ingredients:
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened
1/4 cup molasses, blackstrap
1/4 cup peanut butter
4 eggs
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
2 ripe bananas, mashed


Instructions: Preheat oven to 350° F
In a stand mixer bowl, add the canola oil, applesauce and molasses.
On low-medium speed, thoroughly combine.
Add the peanut butter, and mix until combined.
Add the eggs one at a time, until all combined.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and cinnamon.
Using the lowest setting, or the stir setting on your mixer, slowly add the dryingredients.
In a small bowl, mash the bananas.
Take the mixing bowl off the stand. Fold in the mashed bananas, making sure they are well incorporated.
Using a baking spray with flour, generously spray each 8 inch pan.
Divide the batter between both pans.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes clean. Rotate the pans on the racks half way through the baking time.
Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
Remove the cakes from the pan, and cool completely on a wire rack.   Cream Cheese Dog Treat Frosting Ingredients: 8 ounces cream cheese (low or fat free) 2 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. plain yogurt (low or fat free)
flour (see note)

Note: You will need approximately 3 Tbsp. of flour. You can use any type of flour for this recipe. Keep in mind that if you use wheat flour (or another type of flour with specs of color) it may affect the end color of the icing.   Instructions: Mix first three ingredients in a bowl until smooth.
Mix in one tablespoon of flour at a time until you have a good consistency for spreading.Storing - This dog cakerecipe will keep fresh in the refrigerator for about 5 days. Freeze the cakes for up to 3 months. If you choose to freeze the cakes, wrap each one individually with plastic wrap. Then wrap each one with heavy duty aluminum foil. Then place each one in a labeled freezer bag. It may seem like a lot of work, but it will keep the dog cakes delicate texture fresh longer.

Yield - Two 8 inch round cakes.
Tips & Techniques Decorating Ideas - For an all out special dog cake, make enough cream cheese dog frosting to put between the two cakes, on top and the sides of the layered cake. Or, my favorite decorating idea is to cut half inch banana slices and place them as the layer between the two cakes. Then frost the top of the cake with cream cheese frosting. If your dog is watching his calorie intake, you should limit the amount of icing you put on the cake. One idea is to use the frosting to make small polka dots and write a happy note on top of the cake, like "#1 DOG". You can omit the frosting all together and use banana slices as the decoration.

Mini Muffins - Using a mini muffin pan with 24 cups, you will be able to fill your pan twice to get a total of 48 muffins. Bake at the same temperature, but for 10 minutes. Turn the pan half way for even baking. Let the pan cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before removing the muffins. Cool the muffins on a wire rack. We like this version of creating mini muffins best because it is so versatile. If your dog is small, you can easily break apart one muffin for two servings. Or, for larger dogs, they get their very own muffin. The muffins also travel very well, so you can make extras for dog party favors, or gifts. We used a scant tablespoon cookie scooper to easily measure the right amount of batter into each cup. The muffins rise quite a bit, so don't overfill the muffin cups.

Paper Liners - We used plain paper liners, but it would be adorable to make these muffins with paw printcupcake liners. Or, match the colors of your dog party, or the season, to make your homemade dog treats more festive.

Stand Mixer - If you don't have a stand mixer, you can use a hand held one instead. But, we recommend the stand mixer due to its many speeds and large capacity for heavier dog treat batters.

Puppy Time: Ham & Cheese on Rye, Dog Cookies

Puppy Time: Ham & Cheese on Rye, Dog Cookies | Diamond Dog Treat Recipes | Scoop.it

Ham & Cheese on Rye, Dog Cookies Wheat free dog treats can be just as easy to make as other homemade dog treat recipes. This one uses rye flour for a nutty & hearty flavor that holds up well to the strong flavors of ham and Parmesan cheese.
Rye flour is a fantastic addition to your dogs diet. Rye is a good source of fiber and can help fill up your dogs tummy. This equals an easier way to loose weight or maintain a healthy weight.

We've made this wheat free dog cookie recipe even healthier with the flax meal. Although a small amount, two tablespoons pack a punch. The needed Omega 3 fatty acids will help your dogs skin and coat. Not to mention flax is also a good source of fiber for your dog and you.

The next time you are craving a deli sandwich with all the works, by all means indulge! But don't forget about your loyal companion. Make this enticing ham and cheese on rye dog cookie, take a walk to the deli with your dog and eat up together.


Ingredients:
1 cup rye flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/8 cup flax meal
2 eggs
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, reduced fat
1/3 cup chicken broth (organic & low sodium is best)
2 to 3 oz. ham, finely diced

Instructions: Preheat oven to 350° FIn a large bowl, whisk together the rye flour, rolled oats and flax meal.In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and stir in the Parmesan cheese and chicken broth.Make a well in the dry mixture and pour in the cheese mixture.Stir together until combined.Fold in the diced ham.Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.Using a tablespoon sized scooper, scoop out little round balls.Dip the bottom of a measuring cup or glass in a bowl of water and flatten the ball into a cookie shape.Repeat this process with the remaining batter.Bake for 15 minutes.Turn off the oven and let the treats cool completely before serving.

Storing - These wheat free dog treats should be kept in the refrigerator. In a sealed container they will stay fresh for a week or two. You can store them in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Yield - Using a tablespoon sized cookie scooper, you should get 2 dozen dog cookies to enjoy and share.


Whole Wheat Flour - If your dog is not sensitive to wheat you can still make this dog treat recipe. Substitute therye flour for whole wheat flour, and enjoy.


Ham or Different Meats - For ease of preparation I used lean ham lunch meat slices. I laid them on top of each other and then cut into 1/4 inch strips. Then I diced those strips into very small pieces, about the size of a pencil eraser head. This enables a little bit of ham to be in almost every bite. You can also use other lean lunch meats like chicken or turkey. If it's available, look for low sodium as a healthier choice.

Gluten Free? - Rye flour is wheat free, but not entirely gluten free. Although it does have a much smaller amount of gluten than other "gluten grains". If your dog is very sensitive to gluten, please avoid this flour and make thesewheat free dog treats with brown rice flour. The same is true for the rolled oats. Oats are naturally gluten free. However, they are often contaminated with gluten from neighboring fields or in the processing facilities. If your dog is very sensitive you can purchase certified gluten free oats to be safe.
Wheat free dog treats are just as delicious as their wheat counterparts. A little knowledge and a new flour or two will keep your dog healthy, happy and begging for more tasty ham and cheese on rye dog cookies.
