We are back to baking with our pumpkin cake mix for dogs, because I know you all missed the pumpkin recipes. Tis' the season for pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING! This week I thought it would be fun to include our shortbread cookie mix. So today I will be walking you through how to make a Pumpkin Spice Cookie Cake for your precious pooch!
What You’ll need:
1 Box of Pumpkin Spice Cake Mix for Dogs
1 Bag of Shortbread Cookie Mix for Dogs
Two 8” Round Baking Pans
½ cup to 1 cup of peanut butter
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Make the Shortbread Cookie Mix! Follow the directions on the back of the cookie mix bag by adding 1 egg, 1 TBSP of oil and ¼ cup of hot water in a large bowl. Stir well until the dough forms. Spray an 8” round pan with non-stick cookie spray and press the cookie dough into the round pan until the dough is evenly in the pan.
Place the pan into the oven for about 6 minutes or until the cookie is light golden brown. After the cookie pan is done, remove the pan from the oven and let cool completely.
While the cookie pan is cooling, begin to make the Pumpkin Spice cake mix for dogs!
Turn oven back on to 350 degrees and spray your second 8” round pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In another large bowl, stir well together 1 egg, ¾ cup of water and ¼ cup of oil. Mix well until all lumps are removed from the batter.
Pour the Pumpkin Cake batter into the baking pan, making sure all lumps and bubbles are removed from the pan. Place in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
Once the cake is finished baking, remove the cake pan to completely cool!
Remove the cookie from the pan and place on a plate. Empty the contents of the icing packet into a bowl and add 2 TBSP of water, stirring well! Add ½ cup (or 1 cup, depending on the size of your cookie) of peanut butter to the icing and stir well. Ice the entire top of the cookie. (Do not use all of the icing, as you will need to use icing for the top of the cake too!) Then place the pumpkin spice cake directly on top of the peanut butter icing. Ice the top of pumpkin spice cake!
Finally, serve a slice of Pumpkin Spice Cookie Cake to your pup and watch them savor every bit. Enjoy!
