Who doesn't like liver cake?

Well, most people I suppose. But if you were a dog, you'd go wild for it! For Sprocket's birthday one year we made him a liver cake birthday cake. Let me tell you, it was very well received as you can see in our video!

We've been baking this tasty treat for a while now, and thought we would share the cheap and simple recipe with you. Check out our recipe video below, and the liver cake recipe method written out underneath.

How to bake a liver cake - easy recipe

Heat your oven to 180C = 350F = Gas Mark 4


1 teaspoon of baking powder

(Or, if you prefer, substitute the plain flour and baking powder for 450g of self-raising flour)

150ml water

450g lamb's liver


Pop the liver into a food processor and blitz until smooth.

Then add the three eggs and water, and blitz again.

​Then, in stages, add the flour and baking powder, and make sure it's all well mixed together.

Pour the mixture into a loaf tin lined with baking parchment, and pop it in the oven for 35 - 40 minutes. You can check it is cooked when you insert a skewer or knife, and it comes out clean. If any mixture sticks to it, put it in for another couple of minutes, then check again.


The smell filling your kitchen may well be driving pup mad, but let the cake cool for a bit. It's totally safe for humans to eat, but having tried it, it's not recommended unless you like eating sweaty armpits.

Then you can put it on a fancy cake stand like we did, or be normal and give it to your dog in sliced, sensible portions!

We hope you have been able to follow this easy liver cake recipe for your dog. Remember to take some photos of your dog enjoying this tasty treat and share them with us on our Facebook page, Simply cut the liver cake into cubes about the size of some dice and give your dog a tasty treat! Enjoy!
