    I use this for training...the dogs love it...I swear by it!!

    1lb Liver
    1/2 lb plain flour
    1 egg
    2 garlic cloves

    Liquidize the egg and garlic gradually adding the liver.

    Mix with flour in a mixing bowl until you have a paste.

    Bake at 200 degrees (gas mark 6) for 40-50 minutes and cut into small pieces.

    Freeze until required!!

    Easy...piece of cake...literally!!

    My dogs love it!! I don't often freeze it unless I make a massive batch as I have 3 dogs plus any I am boarding so get through it quite quickly!! xx

    It is easy to make, but I think you have to have a strong stomach! As well as watching that liver go round in the liquidiser, you have to be able to put up with the smell when it's cooking. I made it once - never again, it was disgusting, my house smelt for days!:scared:

    Wifey makes this too but doesn't put the garlic in, firstly because we thought it was poisonous for dogs and because the whole house stinks of it and we hate garlic.

    Garlics fine for dogs, a lot of people give either a clove or a garlic pearl daily to their dogs as a flea repellant, as well as for their heart health. I run a doggie deli, this is one of my most popular sellers ;) Though I do it as a wheat gluten free version ;)

    Try sardine cake, now that smells lol

    ohh bear and my mums dog Dylan loved the liver cake!

    dylan broke his own cardinal rule of no jumping at people to get to the liver cake, he is a ten yr old with back hips (GSD cross)

    however it didn't resolve the re-call issue arising with my teenager bear

    i make this for lexie, she loves it too. but i agree the smell making it is absolutely vile-and seeing liver being blended is not for the faint hearted! if you REALLY want a challenge try making it with the dog in the room! lexie was going mad trying to get up on the worktop and into the oven!!!!! i made it without the garlic as i reckon her breath can be smelly enough without garlic breath too!

    I make this for Toby & he LOVES it!!! I find that if I take this our with me his recall is 100% even when chasing rabbits!

    The problem is the disgusting smell when it's cooking :scared:

    Amm gonna make a batch of it, as my OH has told me that Holly has stopped coming back during walks (due to his parents not keeping up the training), so it'll be needed :)

    I havent made it yet, keep threatening everytime I see it here.

    Went to Morrisons and bought reduced ox and chicken livers.
    We had ox liver for tea with pigs in blankets peas and mash - Yum.
    Was going to make pate with the chicken livers but it may have to be liver cake. Hopefully the chicken livers wont be as disgusting in the liquidiser as bigger dollops of the stuff.

    Must remember to cut and paste the recipe this time:thumbup:
