Sasha's Birthday!

Sasha, looking cheeky with her bunny ears

It is Sasha's 16th birthday today!  No, that is not a typo. She is actually 16 (112 in doggie years?), and acts like she's 3. She's currently wearing a floral pastel bandana with sequins and taking a nap (yes, she is pretty fabulous).We will be going to get her doggie driving license soon. I can't drive, but maybe my collie can!

I am going to be making a doggie birthday cake  for Sasha and her sister Beans. We'll also share some with the neighbor's dog (he likes cake, too!). There will be sliced banana on top, because Sasha looooves bananas.

Happy Birthday Cake for Doggies
1 egg
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup cooking oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup honey (optional)
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup whole wheat or white flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 6 cup ring mold.

  • Combine the egg, peanut butter, oil, vanilla, and honey, if desired, in a large bowl; blend well. Stir in the carrots and mix thoroughly. Sift together the flour and baking soda and fold into the carrot mixture. Spoon cake batter into prepared pan.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes; then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Happy late (or early depending on how you look at it) birthday, Sasha. We miss you, your sis, mom and dad!
