Liver Cake For Dogs

Do you want to know how to make liver cake for dogs? If you haven’t already made it for your four legged friend, you really need to give it a go, they’ll love you even more (if that’s at all possible!) 

First up, I’m not a fan of liver.

But my dog is. And who am I to deny that face of cuteness?!

Liver cake makes the perfect dog treat and is especially useful for training dogs.

This particular recipe makes a large amount, what I like to do is make this quanity and then freeze some to defrost for later use.

You only need to give them a tiny little bit when you are training, so make sure you cut it up into really small chunks. Liver cake is rich and a little goes a long way.

If you want to make less, then you will need to scale it down accordingly.

How To Make Liver Cake For Dogs

You’ll need a blender or food processor to make this liver cake recipe. I used my Ninja blender, but you can use any blender. 

Place the liver, egg and garlic (removed – I have too many questions about garlic and dogs, please ask your vet for advice) in the blender and blast it until smooth. If you don’t like liver, you probably won’t enjoy this part! 

Mix it into the flour. I used spelt flour, but you can also use wholemeal flour.

Transfer it to a baking tray. You can lightly grease it, or use some baking paper, to stop it from sticking.

Cook it for about 30 minutes and then leave it to cool before slicing it up into bite sized treats.

Side note: if your dog is about during this time they will go pretty crazy trying to get a sneaky taste in!  

Storing Liver Cake

Once the liver cake has cooled down, chop it up into smaller treat sizes and portion them out for when you need to use them.

Liver cake will last for up to 3 days in the fridge – store them in an airtight container, or sandwich bags. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months.

Can you use self raising flour instead of spelt or wholemeal?

I have made this and my dogs go crazy for it. Thank you for the recipe. But can someone tell me how much they are allowed per day. I think I might be giving mine too much. Thanks x

Great recipe. I followed it exactly and it worked perfectly. Nice and simple. I also dehydrated after cutting to extend shelflife and make them more portable. Our sweet Cocker Spaniel adores these treats. Thanks for posting.

I tried this recipe today and next thing I knew was my two older dogs and the puppy sitting by me as I prepared this avidly watching me hoping I'd drop some. As soon as the cake came out, the dogs were back and nearly drooling. When I did a bit of training with my puppy later on, she absolutely adored these and was extremely attentive. She was quite disappointed when the training session came to an end. The older dogs sat on their beds licking their lips for a while after. On to a real winner here! Thank you! PS I omitted the garlic though.

Hi Sophie - I chop it up then bag them up separately before freezing so that I can defrost a small portion at a time.
