Tips to make a cake for your dog
Meatloaf Recipe for Dogs
We all know that what our dogs like best is meat, so the cake could not contain another main ingredient that was not just that, meat. A little chicken, veal or lamb can be used to make this simple recipe.
The first thing we need is to get all the ingredients, most of us will have them at home but if we lack one, we simply have to go to the supermarket and pick it up to get our hands on the dough.
Ingredients needed to make a cake for dogs:
- 250 grams of flour (white or whole, although it is better).
- Three fresh chicken eggs.
- 250 grams of minced meat of chicken, veal or lamb (without skin or bones).
- A small teaspoon of yeast.
- A thimble of olive oil.
- A natural yogurt (optional).
- Natural pork pate (optional for decoration / filling).
The preparation of this cake for dogs is very simple, simply we must use a wide container where you can mix all the ingredients until you get a homogeneous mass.
Once we have the bowl/bowl, we will add the eggs without peel and we will beat them, then we will add the flour little by little to avoid lumps, if we sift it will be much simpler.
Once we have the dough more or less prepared, we will add the yeast, the oil and the minced meat, mixing everything thoroughly so that it is well homogenous. Add a bit of yogurt is optional, many dogs eat natural yogurt without feeling bad but others do not tolerate it very well.
If you have already tried it before and know that your dog tolerates yogurt, you can add half a yogurt or whole yogurt to the dough. The measure varies depending on the consistency of the dough itself, if it is too loose add only a little, if it is too hard to add more.
Honey can also be an optional ingredient that adds a touch of sweetness, the benefits of honey in dogs are demonstrated, and we should add a small spoonful how much.
Once we have all the ingredients well kneaded, we will spread a little oil in the cake pan (thus avoiding the dough to sink while cooking) and pour the dough into it.
We will heat the oven to one hundred ninety degrees and put the cake in its mold for twenty or thirty minutes. The way to know if it is already well cooked is to prick it with a stick or fork, if it comes out clean (no remains of dough) the cake is ready.
Once we take it out of the oven we should wait for it to cool completely, at least for one or two hours. We already have our dog cake ready! But … what if we want to give it a special touch?
We can cover the cake with a little natural pork pate or open the cake in half and spread pate inside, as a filling. Your puppy will go crazy enjoying his delicious cake!!
How should I give my dog his cake?
The best thing is to split the cake for dogs in small portions and go giving them little by little, if your dog is of medium or small size you can save part of the cake to distribute it in a couple of days.
Remember that the cake is a gift for special occasions, it should never be replaced permanently by your daily diet. If your dog is allergic to any of the ingredients used, obviously you should not give him a cake or make a cake without that particular ingredient.
The temperature of the cake is very important, dogs can eat it even fresh out of the oven and burn. That is why we must make sure that it is completely cold before serving it. If your dog is too small to eat a cake, you can always prepare some cupcakes for dogs. Enjoy it!
