Already cook for the family? Can you follow a recipe? Can you use a stove, oven, and mixer? Making treats like this dog meatloaf cake recipe isn’t hard at all. If you already know how to cook for humans, then cooking for a pup is super simple. You just have to remember one important rule. Do not add anything they aren’t supposed to eat like onions, garlic, or raisins. After all, you wouldn’t add peanuts to a recipe for someone with a nut allergy.
