This one's for the pooch. I love my pets and every year we make just as big of a deal over their birthdays as we do for everyone else in the family. So, in honor of Puppy Dog's Birthday we are baking a cake. This is a particularly toothsome recipe, and it's all vegan, in case your pooch observes a vegetarian diet.
- 3 1/2 cups whole wheat or unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 cup carob powder
- 1/2 cup arrowroot
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 ½ cups maple syrup
- 2 cups soy milk
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 ½ cups canola oil
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
Place the flour, carob, arrowroot, baking powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl and mix to combine.
Place the maple syrup, soy milk, vinegar, and oil in a large bowl and whisk until combined.
Add the maple syrup mixture to the flour mixture and mix well until combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Set aside until cool. Cut into 24 squares. Cover and refrigerate up to 5 days or freeze up to one month.
Happy Birthday, Puppy Dog! Ruff, Ruff!
