Who doesn't like liver cake?
Well, most people I suppose. But if you were a dog, you'd go wild for it! It was Sprocket's birthday recently and to celebrate, 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 at HHDB HQ, and thought we would share the cheap and simple recipe with you. Check out our video below, and the recipe method written out underneath.

Baking a Liver Cake - Recipe
Heat your oven to 180C = 350F = Gas Mark 4
3 medium free range eggs
450g plain flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
(Or, if you prefer, substitute the plain flour and baking powder for 450g of self-raising flour)
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.
Once you have taken photos and shared them with us below in the comments or on our Facebook page, cut the cake into cubes about the size of some dice and give your dog a tasty treat! Enjoy!
