This is probably the most popular dog treat recipe on the internet.  For this liver cake recipe I make the mixture in 2 batches because it’s quite heavy work for the blender but if you have a powerful blender (like this one) then you can do it all in one go, personally I just use my cheap and trusty hand blender and it’s really easy to clean afterwards.  It’s a very simple recipe and cheap to make, all supermarkets sell liver so it’s easy to find but if you can’t get liver you can try other meats, like minced beef, kidney, heart, chicken liver or even tuna!  Once cooked put it in the freezer until needed.  No need to defrost, there’s very little water content so can be eaten by your dog straight away.

Ideal as a treat, a dog birthday cake, selling at fairs etc etc.
