  • 1/3 cup (2 ½ oz/71g) peanut butter*

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup (5oz/142g) whole wheat flour

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Butter and line 2 (6-inch) round cake pans with parchment paper, set aside. 

  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, oil, apple sauce, peanut butter, carrot, and honey until smooth.

  3. Next, stir in the flour and baking powder until combined. Divide the batter between the two prepared cake pans.

  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of the cake comes out clean. Allow cooling in the pan for 3-5 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack. Let cool to room temperature.

  5. Stack layers together using a thin layer of peanut butter. Serve a little slice to your furry friend.

  6. Cover the cake with cling wrap and store at room temperature for up to 3 days. Freeze the rest in slices to give as a treat in the future.
