Fruit cake dog cookies - I made modifications
(Cherry Hill NJ)
I was making a batch of the fruitcake cookies to sell at a craft/flea market type of place. I mixed everything together, and just was not happy with the 'granola' texture the recipe yielded. I had wanted something different.
However, since I had invested the time and cost of the dried fruits and nuts already, I used the rest of the water that the fruit had been soaking in, added powdered milk, baking soda and enough flour to get a stiff and sticky dough that I then dropped on a greased cookie sheet and baked according to the original recipe.
My taste testers loved them - I broke them up in smaller pieces and trick requests were being anticipated by the dogs to "earn" another piece. It also changed the yield of the recipe to a much larger number of cookies.
I love your site and the recipes are great - my dog and the other testers I know have loved every single recipe I have tried! - even the dog whose human says is very picky about treats loved treats made with oat flour.
Chef's Comments ~ Excellent! I'm so glad you worked with the recipe to get exactly what you were looking for. That's what baking homemade dog treats is all about! :) I'm so glad all of your tasted testers were happy.
Coconut a must in fruit dog cake recipe?
I cannot find unsweetened coconut anywhere in my town. Do I have to use it or is there something else I can substitute it for. Thank you!
Chef's Answer ~ Well, since the coconut is such a major part of this dog cake recipe, I'm not sure if you could substitute it and still have a good end result. I suppose you could try half rolled oats and half regular sweetened coconut flakes. That way you would not be adding too much extra sugar to the treats.
You can always purchase unsweetened coconut online if you didn't want to change the recipe.
I hope this helps. Happy Dog Treat Baking! :)
