When you're celebrating a special occasion and you want your pooch to share in the festivities, bake him his own cake. Most human cakes contain all kinds of unhealthy ingredients for canines, like flour, chocolate and sugar. Avoid such issues by creating a tasty flourless cake just for Fido.

Step 1

Combine the dry dog cake ingredients together in a mixing bowl. These dry ingredients consist of 1 3/4 cups of cornmeal, 1/4 cup of ground flax seed meal and 1 teaspoon each of baking powder and baking soda. Flaxseed meal contains lots of healthy omega-3 fatty acids to support a healthy coat, according to WebMD.

Step 2

Whisk together the wet ingredients. These ingredients consist of 2 eggs, 1 3/4 cups of buttermilk, 1/2 cup of pureed cooked chicken and 1/4 cup of grated carrots.

Step 3

Combine wet and dry ingredients, and stir them together to form a thick batter.

Step 4

Heat 1/4 cup of vegetable oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat until it sizzles. Vegetable oil provides healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

Step 5

Pour the batter into the skillet and stir well.

Step 6

Remove the skillet from the heat and place it into the middle rack of your oven, preheated to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 7

Bake the cake for 20 minutes.

Step 8

Remove the cake and flip it onto a plate with a spatula.

Step 9

Allow the cake to cool for 20 minutes before frosting it with a mixture of 1/2 cup of cream cheese and 1/2 cup of pate-style dog food.

Step 10

Garnish the cake with dog biscuits, grated carrots and green beans, all good sources of fiber for your pooch. Plus, they give the cake a pop of color. Cut and serve it to your pooch on a decorative plate or in his doggie dish.
