MaryLynn: That was adorable to watch! Both Bruce and Gryphon have exquisite table manners (the occasional burp aside). You are obviously a wonderful baker, and your dh is funny, calling for a "cake intervention" as he did. You deserve to be proud of your boys for getting along so well together, and sharing the clean up duties. to Bruce! Thanks for sharing the fun!

It is a doggie carrot cake, but there is no white sugar in it, so it's not really a cake so to speak. It smelled good, but I didn't try it.

It also had peanut butter in it, I'm not sure that it would be something a person would like to eat!

Preheat 350

heavily spray a 4 or 6 inch cake pan, or you can make probably about 4 muffins.

I think I baked it for 35-40 mins

1 cup shredded carrot
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup flour (wheat, white, potato, rice etc)
1/4 cup oil (if your dog has a food allergy be careful here with what you choose!)
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
1 egg
1/4 cup honey

for the top

light cream cheese, room temperature mixed with a bit of natural peanut butter

I decorated the top with some thinly sliced aged cheddar :P

My grandmother has a really great 'simple' carrot cake recipe (she guards her recipes pretty heavily...) and I will see if I can get a peak at it over the holidays. I have made lots, but none of the simple ones seem quite as good as hers.

As for easy but AMAZING carrot cakes I like this recipe from Sweetpolita's blog

Sweetapolita ? Zingy Orange Ginger Carrot Cake with White Chocolate Icing

And this one is good, but not a favorite (the DH hates coconut),

Sweetapolita ? Hawaiian Carrot Cake with Coconut Icing

I also like smittenkitchen for a cooking blog, and a few others.

I have some of my 'own' recipes, but not a carrot cake unfortunately.

Maybe you will be inspired to make one of the above. The white chocolate frosting seems intimidating, but you can simply replace it with a vanilla cream cheese one.
