Happy Birthday to my Kids

My kids had their 5th birthday and we celebrated with a great steak dinner and barkday cake! Boy was it yummy! Apple, banana, peanut butter & yogurt, our favorites! I can't wait for my Barkday to come! Since so many folks have asked, here is the recipe for our Barkday cake! It was so yummy and Mom & Dad even enjoyed a piece despite my pleadings to keep it all for us doggies! Oh well, they share their food sometime so I guess it's only fair!

Applesauce Oatmeal No Wheat Barkday Cake

3/4 cup hot water
1 cup whole rolled oats
3 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Combine applesauce, water and oats and let stand 15 minutes. Beat in the shortening, cinnamon and granola. Transfer batter to greased 9" square pan. Smooth and flatten with spatula.
