Pumpkin Cake for Dogs

You don’t have to wait for Halloween to make a pumpkin cake for dogs. Pumpkin is a healthy dog treat ingredient. It contains alpha-carotene which is eventually converted to Vitamin A, essential for healthy vision and a productive immune system. Alpha-carotene promotes good skin health too.

Pumpkin cake recipe uses fresh or canned pumpkin

Fresh or canned pumpkin is the featured ingredient in this dog cake recipe. Make sure you do not use the pumpkin pie filling because that contains a large amount of sugar.

This dog cake recipe lends itself very well to a batch of dog cupcakes. The cakes will look like pumpkin muffins and will taste like pumpkin muffins.

Cinnamon and honey will complete the recipe. You will be using all-natural, human-grade ingredients, and trust us, it will be hard not to taste these yourself. Since the ingredients are all human-grade and the recipe has been adjusted to be palatable to humans as well, make a cup of coffee and enjoy one with your dog.

  • Grease the bottom and sides of the silicone cake pan
  • Stir the cake mix, water, and oil together. OMIT THE EGG
  • Add the pumpkin and cinnamon and mix together.
  • Pour into the silicone pan and cook for 4 minutes. Low-wattage microwave ovens may take additional time.
