Happy 1st Birthday Einstein!


Tomorrow marks Einstein’s 1st birthday, and Nick and I thought we would celebrate today by giving him a birthday cake to enjoy πŸ™‚ Einstein managed to inhale his piece of cake in under 3 seconds, so I think he was pleased with his first birthday cake. And Nick’s take on the cake – it tastes like a dry version of peanut butter banana muffins – he ate two pieces πŸ™‚

Here are some pictures of the birthday boy enjoying his cake:

Peanut Butter Banana Cake for Dogs
(Adapted from Just the Recipes)

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 banana, mashed (about 1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup honey
1 egg

Mix flour and baking soda. Add remaining ingredients and mix together. Pour into greased 8″ (I used 9″) round cake pan and bake at 350 degree F for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool. Puree cottage cheese or fat free cream cheese for icing.
