This liver cake recipe is very simple to make, cheap, the perfect cake for dogs, and the most popular dog food recipe on my website. Dogs love it. All supermarkets sell liver so it’s easy to find but if you can’t get liver you can use other ingredients for your dog cake mix, like minced beef, kidney, heart, chicken livers or even tuna! Once cooked put what you won’t be using in the next couple of days in the freezer until needed. Defrosts in just minutes once out of the freezer. You can top with cream cheese if you want to add frosting. Alternatively, instead of using a cake tin try using a cupcake tray. Check out my pupcake recipe for details. Or for a different cake recipe try my birthday cake recipe for dogs.
Back in 2011 my family and I had a stall at the Langbank gala day and one of the things for sale was the liver cake I had made. It was portioned, wrapped up in cling film and laid out on our stall. The people who brought their dogs to the fair were dragged over by their dogs anytime they got close – it sold itself that day with the owner’s dogs’ help. A fantastic item to sell at fairs.
If, for any reason, you can’t get liver, try heart or kidney.
- 9″ cake tin
- Hand Blender
- 500g ( 1lb) of liver
- 2 Eggs
- 200g (7oz) Wholemeal flour
- 1 crushed garlic clove or 1 small teaspoon of lazy garlic – optional. But isn’t garlic bad for dogs?
- A splash of milk
Add the liver, the eggs, the garlic and a splash of milk to a jug.
And blend it. It should look a bit like a smoothie once done.
Transfer the mix to a large bowl and add 200g (7oz) of flour.
Mix ingredients until it’s a thick sticky goo. You can add a bit more flour if it’s not thick enough. But it should be fine.
Grease a cake tin with a little butter.
Empty your mix into cake tin, making sure it’s level.
Put cake tin into the middle of a preheated oven at 160ºC (320ºF/Gas Mark 3) and cook for about 45 mins.
Right, it should now be cooked. Yummy!
It’s easier to cut while it’s still warm.
Cut into squares and fridge. Freeze what you won’t use in a few days.
If your dog is like mine, she will have watched you the entire time.
