Poppydog cake


I know I have just posted but I just remembered one of my comments this week being from mymumdom who asked what recipe I was planning to do for Poppydog's Birthday - she will be 5 on Valentines day! 

It was a recipe that a good friend gave to me, so here goes my first recipe post

Birthday Cake for Poppydog

6oz SR wholemeal flour
2oz Demerara sugar
2 tablespoons dried skimmed milk [although I use fresh milk]
2 small eggs beaten
5 tablespoons cold water
2 overflowing tablespoons liquid honey
4 overflowing tablespoons of mascarpone cheese
Doggy Chocs or treats, Birthday candles and holders to decorate.

1.    Pre-heat oven to 180oC / 350oF / Gas Mark 4.
2.    Grease two 7” round cake tins
3.    Put all ingredients except honey, cheese and doggy chocs/treats into a bowl and fold together. 
4.    Divide mixture into the two cake tins.
5.    Bake in middle of over for about 20mins. Allow to cool
6.    Mix honey and 3 tablespoons of cheese together and spread the mixture on the cake
7.    Place the other cake on top and frost with remaining cheese
8.    Decorate the cake with doggy chocs, treats and candles.


9.    Send invites to all your dog’s friends for a birthday feast!


  1. Thanks so much for that! That sounds good enough for the kids, let alone the dogs. ( Without the doggy treats of course)
    Will you forgive me if I put my professional hat on ( this is also me ) and suggest you leave out the sultanas, as they can be toxic to dogs?

  2. Hi mymumdom - thanks for the heads up on the sultanas, I will delete them from the recipe! heading over to your other site to have a nosey!
