    There are lots of variations on this recipe the main thing to remember is not to be too worried about exact measurements, I promise the dogs will love it anyway!

    About 1/2 lb or average size pack of chicken or lambs liver
    4 eggs
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    About 1/2 lb rice flour

    I use rice flour for all my recipes as Barney has IBS and wheat aggravates it. Dogs find rice much easier to digest but you can use normal /self raising flour if you wish.

    Top Tip - have a sink/bowl of warm water ready to clean your food processor - trust me you don't want to be washing up dried on liver from all those hard to reach bits of your machine!

    Put the liver and the eggs in a food processor and whizz until smooth. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and wash up the processor straight away.

    To the liver/egg mix stir in the rice flour - just keep adding until you have a thick cake like batter. The amount will vary a lot depending on how much blood in the liver /size of the eggs.

    Next tip in to a tin. I use a large roasting tray lined with one of those tefal non stick sheets which are really easy to clean afterwards and make getting the cake out a doddle.

    Cook in a moderate oven - about 180 degrees for about 40 minutes - longer if your tin is smaller and deeper - test by sticking a skewer in and see if it comes out clean. This is based on the batter being about 1/2 inch thick

    Remove from oven and allow to cool somewhere safe from eager noses.

    Cut into bite size chunks (will store in an airtight container for about a week.) If you have more than you need for a week pop into bags in the freezer. The dogs love it frozen or defrosted.

    Option - if you don't want to use so many eggs, use two the mix will be heavier more biscuity but just as tasty to a lab. Don't worry if it's a bit over or underdone I promise they won't care and are the best audience to cook for ever!

    Sounds disgustingly perfect! :D Thanks Carole. Freezing is ideal, my dogs are quite happy with frozen food. Their favourite is 'tripesicles'
