About this Recipe

I love this time of year, there are just so many occasions to celebrate with food. Fresh off the back of valentines day where we brought you our heart shaped strawberry cookies, we have the perfect pancake – or pawcake recipe if you will – for your furry friend.


This recipe is also Gluten free, thus making it great for pooches who are intolerant or sensitive. I’d also recommend you check the labels on your peanut butter and go for one as natural as possible, alternatively you could make your own – check out our kitchen hacks highlight on our instagram story reel . For these pawcakes, I used the paw cookie cutter from this set. 

I’ll be allowing Willow to have one per day and reducing her meals down a little to compensate as it’s a little bigger and more calorie dense than her normal snacks


  •  70g  (1/2 cup) Buckwheat flour 
  • 135ml (1/2 cup) Buttermilk
  • 2 Tbsp Quick Cook Polenta
  • 3 Tbsp Peanut Butter (2 for the pancakes and 1 for the glaze)
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 2-4 Tsp Rapeseed Oil for cooking
  • 2-3 Tbsp water
  • Fruit to decorate if you want to really impress your pooch!

Step by Step Instructions

 Step 1

In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg, buttermilk and  2 tbsp. ofthe peanut butter together until combined.

Step 2

Fold in the flour, polenta and baking powder and mix well. Add in the water little by little until your mixture is pancake consistency.

Step 3

Heat half the oil in a pan on a medium temperature. Once hot, using a large serving spoon, spoon in enough of the pancake batter for one pancake.

Step 4

Cook for a few minutes on one side before flipping over.  Once cooked, place to one side and cook the rest one by one, adding more oil to the pan when needed.

Step 5

If you are using a cookie cutter, cut the pancakes to shape. You will need to press the cutter down firmly and wiggle a little to release.

Step 7

To make the glaze, mix the remaining peanut butter with enough water so it’s pourable but not too runny.

Step 8

Serve one a day applying the glaze just before giving it to your eagerly awaiting pooch.


These will last up to 3-4 days in the fridge wrapped in foil.
