Birthday Cake

January 30, 2018

One year ago today, Kevin’s best friend was born into this world.  The joy he has brought into our home is immeasurable!  The love Kevin and Buster Baxter have for one another touches my heart.  Kevin baked this special birthday cake to honor Buster Baxter on this special day.  Just looking at the picture, you can see that he LOVED it!!!!!   From the way he just about devoured the cake in one bite, we can confidently declare it’s the best thing Buster Baxter has ever tasted.  For us, it was fairly decent.   Kevin’s version of “Happy’s Happy Birthday Cake . . . Bananas and Pecans” comes from the book “Easy to Make Organic Dog Treats.”  Happy Birthday, Buster Baxter!  We love you!!!!

Birthday Cake

2 c. whole wheat flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1/3 c. mashed, ripe bananas

¾ c. water

½ c. unsalted butter, softened

½ c. chopped pecans



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Mix flour, powder, and soda in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl, mix the butter, water, and bananas, and then pour it into flour mixture.  Beat until mixture mixes well.  Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.  Stir in pecans.  Pour into greased and floured Bundt pan.

Bake for about 30 minutes.  Cool for ten minutes, and then remove from pan.
