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.

Thank you for the recipe, I’ve made mine with coconut flour, so fingers crossed it tastes okay, as I plan on sharing with my dog.

Yesssss. My dog is totally down to arm wrestle me for these treats. They are stinky so be warned. Lol, I had to cool them in the back deck because.. ack! I cooked them, cut them into 1/2 squares and popped them back into the oven just like biscotti. I wanted them just a little drier for the treat bag.

I also skipped the garlic, because well, I’m not a fan of the big D so why take a chance. He doesn’t mind.

I do, however, endorse the “everything in small doses” argument. I also like to introduce new foods slowly and may add it in the next batch. I will likely limit portions to a quarter cup or less. He’s a big boy at 60# and the added protein won’t hurt him.

My dog starts official obedience training next week and you guessed it, this is gonna be my secret weapon. Bwahahaha. Thanks, girl!!

Just found your recipe made it for my Italian greyhound (6 months) puppy. He is a total fan!! So easy and well explained, made a big batch and froze it. He is raw fed so a little cooked treat goes down well. He would literally sell all his toys for another cube! Ignore the haters, remember cream always rises to the top, just like your post. White the detritus sinks without a trace. Much love from the UK.

I have made these many times & this is always the recipe I come back to. My mini daxie loves this liver cake. It’s cheaper than bought treats and no nasties. Thanks Liana.
