Quick, Easy, and Simple Apple Carrot Cake for Dogs

Koa's Ruff Life, Koa with his apple and purple carrot pupcake

During a recent therapy dog visit at our school, one of the students brought Koa purple carrots! Thus, I took to the kitchen and made a purple carrot and apple pupcake with yogurt frosting.

This apple and carrot cake for dogs with Greek yogurt frosting is made with simple human ingredients with natural sweetness from the applesauce and honey. Every dog can enjoy this quick, easy, and simple recipe. I believe dogs should have fun and celebrate their lives too!

Koa is not new to homemade dog treats, I have been making this apple carrot cake recipe for years now, and it is a Koa favorite. The next week, we were back spreading love and brought some apple and carrot cake for the students to give Koa as a special treat.
