Cooka just adores Senhor Nuno, our local meat merchant from Mafra. Her tail starts wagging as soon she hears the tires of his truck arrive on the road of our bakery. Nuno’s meat is always of premium quality and fully traceable. And of course only human-grade.
Most dogs enjoy carrots and Cooka absolutely adores them as a healthy chew. Those orange beauties are a highly concentrated source of Beta Carotene, which may promote strong vision, support a glossy fur and healthy skin and strengthen your dog’s natural defence system. Remarkably high in soluble fiber, carrots can also assist digestive health.
At Cooka’s we use fresh carrots from local suppliers.
Oats were grown already gown in ancient China and Greece. The Greeks were the first people to turn oats into porridge. Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth. They’re a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of Vitamin E and B, minerals like zinc, iron and selenium, rich in fibres and antioxidants. The many health-benefits of these grains include weight loss, lowering blood sugar levels and a reduced risk of heart problems. Compared to other grains, oats are rather high in protein and fat. Protein quality is also an important fact, meaning that that it can be easily digested and used by the body and provides a good balance of amino acids.
Oats can be a good source of nutrition for pets who have a dietary sensitivity to gluten. At Cooka’s we love that oats currently do not undergo any genetic engineering or modification. We hope this will stay like this…
Yogurt can be very beneficial for our dogs. High in protein, a good source of calcium, which is vital for healthy bones and full of probiotics which are important for the digestive system. Our preferred yogurt is Greek yogurt
Honey has antimicrobial and antifungal properties, can help to reduce inflammation, sooth stomach ulcers and even assist in curing allergies.
Superfood Powders are dehydrated superfoods, which are then ground into a fine powder. Health-boosting, nourishing and our way to add ‘colours’ to our cookies and cakes.
Tapioca flour comes from the cassava root. This starch-based ingredient is commonly used to thicken foods like soups, stews or our yogurt-based cake and cookie frosting. The flour has a very low nutritional value, but being a ‘resistant starch’ it is very beneficial for the digestive system, as it improves the population of “good” bacteria in the gut microbiome.
The secret ingredient in our recipes is always L♥VE.
Love is nature’s most potent drug and the best: It is for free. Let’s keep on LOVING!

Most of our cakes are available in Medium or Large sizes.
A medium cake with more than 600g of fresh ingredients weights about 500-550g once it is baked and glazed and the large cakes, made from more than 1kg of fresh ingredients will weight about 900g.
For smaller breeds we recommend the ‘Lil heartbreaker’ cake, with just 200g (equals 300g of fresh ingredients) ♥
Our cakes are shipped in a special cool-box and are normally delivered in 24h. However, we cannot guarantee over-night service and there are few occasions the cake might arrive in just 2 days.
Pick-up at our kitchen is available at no additional cost and we are always happy to meet our clients. So please pass by!
Important note: We cannot deliver frosted cakes by a Monday, as this would mean a weekend in transit, which is too risky. If your fur-friend has a celebration on a Monday we suggest you to pass by our bakery or order a ‘NAKED CAKE’ (no frosting and no cool box needed)
♥FOR OUR FUR-FRIENDS in the rest of Europe. Normally our cakes are frosted with a fresh yogurt glaze, which cannot travel longer than 3 days in a special cool box. However, we can offer a dry-yogurt glaze, sprinkled with coconut and our signature ‘dogfetti’. But we cannot guarantee that the cake-glazing arrives without crackles. Otherwise we recommend the “Naked Cake‘ for a fun make-your-own experience.
Cooka’s fresh cakes will keep for up to 6 days in the refrigerator and can be frozen for up to 6 months.
Our ‘Naked Cake’ has been double-baked to be more dry, which makes it easier to store for longer period of times. However, once the Naked Cake gets ‘dressed’ with the yogurt frosting it should be kept in the fridge or freezer.
Our personalised cookies are freshly prepared and should be consumed in 4 weeks after purchase. Please note that the glazing might start to’ crackle’ since it will dry out with time. However, this does not change the taste or yummieness of the treat.
All our cakes and cookies are baked daily from freshly prepared meat, fruit and veggies at low temperature and of course, always with our own paws.
