Sumatra Birthday Cake!

We adopted an awesome dog over the holidays.. We LOVE her to pieces!!!

Her birthday was last week. My daughter BEGGED me to make her a cake…

I looked round and round for recipes, finally deciding on the following one. I had carrots to use, and thought it sounded healthy..

1 egg
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup cooking oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup honey
2 cups shredded carrots (I bet I used more – and what didn’t go into this cake went into black bean soup!)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350. Grease muffin pan or a loaf pan or round cake pan. I used a muffin pan as I thought they’d be easier to freeze and pull out when needed. Please note – my dog is only 17 pounds so one muffin (regular size) is MORE than enough for her 🙂

Combine the egg, peanut butter, oil, vanilla and honey. Blend well.
Stir in carrots and mix thoroughly.
Sift together the flour and baking soda.
Fold in the carrot mixture.

Spoon cake batter into prepared pan.

I baked for 22 minutes – regular muffin size. A loaf pan will probably be close to 40, and mini muffins probably 12-15..

She absolutely POSITIVELY loved this ‘birthday cake’. See?!?
