Dog Friendly Carrot Cake

Treat your furry friends to a special treat on their special day! This Dog Friendly Carrot Cake is made with a few simple, dog-friendly ingredients your pup is sure to love! 


Our little Layla turned 6 YEARS OLD over the weekend, HOW!?! It feels like just yesterday we that we picked up our 7-pound, 7-week-old pup to bring her into our family. We have been completely in love with this girl from the day she came into our lives. She is the most loyal, loving dog and now the best big puppy sister to Wyatt πŸ™‚ 



Watching these two together makes my heart happy. If you’ve met Layla you know she has A LOT of energy and can approach others with, lets just call it, an overwhelming amount of love! But she is the sweetest, gentlest, big sister to Wyatt and he absolutely adores her! When she walks into the room, he immediately turns to her with a smile. She tolerates his, not so gentle “pets” and tail tugs and he gladly shares his meals and snacks with her in exchange for her wet, sloppy kisses! 



Even at 6-years-old everywhere we go Layla is mistaken for a puppy. Just the other day I brought her to get her nails trimmed and the staff mistook her as being 6-months-old rather than 6-years! She gets so many compliments from strangers about how beautiful she is, we joke that it must be nice to get that kind of confidence boost every time you leave the house, ha!



To celebrate 6-years-young I made her this 2-layer dog friendly carrot cake with cream cheese frosting that she would have easily devoured in one sitting if we had let her (don’t worry we didn’t!).

This dog friendly carrot cake can be mixed up in your food processor and bakes in under 20-minutes thanks to the thin layers. Topped with a whipped cream cheese frosting this cake will have your dogs howling for more!

Carrot Cake

2 cups old fashioned oats*

1 tsp baking powder

dash of cinnamon (optional)

1/2 cup grated carrots

1/2 cup full fat, plain greek yogurt

1/2 cup milk**

2 large eggs

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp honey

Cream Cheese Frosting

4oz cream cheese

1/2 cup full fat, plain greek yogurt

2 tbsp heavy whipping cream

1 tbsp honey (optional)

dog treat (for decoration)


Preheat oven to 350Β°F

Grease two 5-inch cake pans with non-stick cooking spray, set aside

Add the oats to the bowl of your food processor, process on high until oats are a fine, flour-like consistency

Add the baking powder and cinnamon (if you are using it), pulse to combine

Add the carrots, greek yogurt, milk, eggs, olive oil and honey, process on high until everything is fully combined

Split the cake mixture evenly between the 2 cake pans, it will not even fill the pan half way (the cake layers are meant to be thin)

Place the cakes in the oven and bake for about 18 minutes until the cake is set in the middle and cooked through

Remove from oven and cool completely before frosting

Cream Cheese Frosting

Add all the ingredients for the frosting (except the dog treat) to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with whisk attachment

Beat on high for 3-5 minutes until the frosting is smooth and has a whipped-like consistency

Set one layer of the cooled cake onto a serving plate

Top that layer with half of the frosting (don’t frost the sides)

Place the second layer on top of the frosting

Top with remaining frosting (don’t frost the sides)

Decorate with a dog treat if you wish


*You can use oat flour and mix the cake in a bowl if you have it on hand

**I used oat milk, any kind of milk will do
