 Directions for Manuka Honey Berry Cakes

  1. Note: While you are free to make adjustments to this recipe, there are a few changes you should avoid, as they could be toxic to dogs, such as avocados, cherries, chocolate, and grapes, or simply unhealthy for them, as with all-purpose white flour. For flour, you should instead use a grain-free option, such as coconut, potato, almond, chickpea, or lentil flour.
  2. To start on this recipe, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the Manuka honey, the eggs, and the coconut oil together in a large-enough bowl before stirring in the coconut flour and the blueberries.
  3. Now, grease a four-inch spring form pan using coconut oil before filling the pan with your cake batter. Bake the cake between 20 and 25 minutes or until the cake’s center feels firm. A toothpick or fork inserted into the center of the cake should come back up clean and without residue. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it ample time to cool down before adding the frosting.
  4. Mix the yogurt, the Manuka honey, and the food coloring together in a bowl to make the frosting. Once mixed, frost the cake before topping it with the blueberries and strawberries.
