Apple and Banana Olive Oil Doggie Birthday Cake

Apple and Banana Olive Oil Doggie Birthday Cake

Sharing is caring!

 

A few days ago it was Dias’ (aka Zeus), second birthday and I made him this delicious and easy to make Apple and Banana Olive Oil Cake.  All the ingredients used are pure and fresh and it makes a great healthy cake, which can also be eaten by humans.

I apologize in advance for the crappy photos but the weather was really bad these few days and I had to take the pictures inside the house.  I wanted to decorate it differently but due to the snow I did not manage to go to the shops to buy the ingredients I needed.

The day before yesterday when we celebrated his birthday, it was raining all day, so I had to take the pictures inside.  The light above the kitchen table makes some awful shades and reflections on the table.

Ingredients for dog cake image

The cake is delicious but a bit denser than usual cake because of the the method I used to  make it but still  it tasted really good.

Apart from the fact that it is not sweet all the ingredients are pure and fresh and it makes a great healthy cake or alternative to dog food, which can also be eaten by us, as well.   If you want to make it for yourselves, just add more honey or sugar to make it sweeter.

I  used a heart shaped 18 x 20 cm baking tin but if you are using a round one a 16 – 18 cm diametre one would be fine.

Dias was very anxious to eat his cake and while I was taking a picture, he actually licked the cake (as he also did last year) 🙂 .

Apple and Banana Olive Oil Doggie Birthday Cake

Preparation time:  30 minutes

Baking time:  45 minutes

Ingredients:

½ apple, peel on
¾ banana
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 large egg
150 grams Greek Yoghurt 2%
2 tsp honey
1 drop vanilla essence (optional)
100 grams Quaker Oats
1 tsp b.p.

Topping:
30 grams cream cheese
20 grams Greek Yoghurt
1 carrot (for decoration)

Directions:

Wash and half the apple. Remove the seeds. Put it in a pot with water to cover it and cook until soft, for about ten minutes. Set aside to cool.
Put the apple, banana, olive oil, egg, yoghurt, vanilla and honey in a food processor and purée.
Empty the mixture in a bowl and mix in the Quaker Oats.
Line a small baking tin with parchment paper. (I used a heart shaped 18 x 20 cm). Empty the mixture and bake in a preheated oven to 180o C for about 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Mix the cream cheese with yoghurt and add a thin layer of cream on top.
Decorate with carrot shavings.

He ate his share with a great appetite and after trying it to see what it tasted like, I used part of the remaining to make a trifle, using the leftover cream cheese.

Trifle with Leftover Cake:

Ingredients:

  • Cream Cheese layer:
  • 270 grams cream cheese

Directions:

  1. Beat the heavy cream with the icing sugar and vanilla until stiff.  Add the cream cheese and mix.
  2. Crumble some of the cake in a bowl and add about 5 cherries with some syrup on top.  Add a layer of cream cheese cream, some more crumbled cake and top with another layer of cream cheese.
  3. Decorate with more cherries.
