Peanut Butter Banana Birthday Cake for Your Fur Child Dog

We’ve had a tradition each year of having a cake for our dog Duke the Whippet on his birthday April 26. Early on, we had a local shop where we’d get his cake, but unfortunately they went out of business in 2019.

So, last year, I purchased this cake set from Chewy that’s also available from Amazon From what I could tell, Duke enjoyed it, but it wasn’t human grade.

Given now, I have a toddler who’d like to celebrate too, I made my own concoction, which came out tasting great. Here’s what you need to do to make the cake that’s family and dog friendly.


3 tbsp peanut butter

1 banana

1/2 cup precooked oats (either old fashioned or steel cuts)

1 egg


  1. Take microwave safe bowl and add the peanut butter and banana. Microwave for 1 minute.
  2. Mash banana and stir with peanut butter. Add oats and egg. Mix vigorously to combine.
  3. Pour into mold that has been sprayed with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Do not overfill and leave it 1/4 inch below top of mold to allow for expansion. You may have enough to fill the mold 2 to 3 times (depending on the size of your mold).
  4. Microwave mold filled with mix for 90 seconds. Add 30 seconds at a time until mix is set, but moist.
  5. Let cool on plate and then serve.
