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.

I've broken a bullet blender and immersion blender from the liver wrapping round the blades. I've cooked the liver beforehand and problem has not occurred however it isn't as strong to the dogs when it's been cooked twice. Any advice please or recommendations for a blender than can survive the dreaded liver?! Thanks!

Hi Lucy - do you mean you cook the liver and then blend it? I blend the liver raw and then cook it. It's only cooked once. Hope that helps!

Do you have an age guideline that this is suitable for, please? We are going to visit our new puppy with his mum tomorrow and I’d love to take something to help him build a positive view of us.

Hi Sam - exciting news on welcoming a puppy to your family! I wouldn't take any food to give to the puppy - ask the breeder about his diet, you don't want any tummy upsets!
