Happy Birthday Oliver....

Oliver is 8yrs old today so I did what any self respecting chef and dog lover would do. I made him his very own birthday cake(he was generous enough to share it with his brother Harley). I actually made it a couple days ago because Chels was here and wanted to help. I frosted it with some fat free blueberry yogurt( just a few spoonsful). He loved it, although he wasnt sure about the candle.
Peanut Butter Carrot Cake

Naturally sweet, colorful and flavorful, this cake is simple and easy to make. Great for Fall.

1 cup flour
1tsp baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter( I used cashew butter because I had some hanging around the back of the fridge)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup shredded carrots
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup honey
1 egg

Mix flour and baking soda. Add remaining ingredients. Pour into greased 8" round cake pan and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Let cool. Puree cottage cheese in blender for icing. Decorate with more peanut butter and carrots.
