    Approx 1lb lamb's liver
    2 eggs
    Approx 8oz self-raising flour

    Weights are approximations as I don't have kitchen scales - I usually bake by cupfuls.

    Liquidise liver and eggs. Turn into a mixing bowl and stir in flour to make a stiff cake consistency.
    Line baking tin with foil and brush with oil. Enough for a tin 6inches by 8 inches, approx 1 1/2 inches deep.
    Turn mixture into tin and bake. 180c for 20 minutes, then 160c for another 20 minutes or until you can insert a knife and the blade comes out clean.

    Allow to cool and cut into small pieces. It has the texture of a loaf of bread.

    I'd forgotten all about Liver Cake. I used to make it for my Italian Spinone buy idea either pig or ox liver to make it more stinky . I also use to list cut some liver into strips and pop in the oven until dry as it makes nice treats

    Has anyone used chicken liver, it's so cheap I just wondered if it actually makes any difference as its not something I particularly like.
    MaccieD such a good idea drying liver in the oven. I need to find some higher value jackpot treats.

    Joy Mabel sends you big Labrador licks as its her birthday next week she will be looking a nice big cake.

    Pilatelover I don't think it matters too much what sort of liver you use it will just alter how smelly it is and how strong the flavour, and of course the cost of the liver.

    Charlie, I used to freeze mine when I made it years ago. I cut it up and open froze it on a tray and then put it in a box.

    I'll start with chicken liver and see how she goes, today she was everyone's best friend which became so tiresome. I should be grateful that recent events don't seem to have not bothered her in the slightest.

    We've had a couple of quiet days due to the weather. had a walk around one of our local lakes this p.m. and didn't see a soul, just lots of ducks and geese which Juno was very interested in and then we had 2 separate hoolies on the last stretch round the lake before returning to the car. Then when we got home she had another couple of hoolies around the living room, tossing her favourite toy around and having a few bum tucks around the coffee table :rolleyes:. Needless say she is now curled up asleep :D

    Yes you can definitely freeze it. I've been cutting it into small pieces first, then you can easily take out what you want to defrost.

    MaccieD I could just imagine Juno . We meet a lady in the woods that we regularly see. She said Mabel I didn't think it was you as you were walking so sensibly. Mabel promptly did bump tucks and jumped all over her. To be fair she does encourage Mabel.

    Pilatelover Ah well you encourage a Labrador at your peril :D:D. I was rather pleased to see the bum tucks as she hasn't done it much lately so it was good to see her acting a few months old. have to say though she's really careful about ensuring she zooms well away from me and any obstacle in the house :cool::cool:. Time to brave the cold wet weather again for our walk

    Ooh, I've not made this in a while. I'll have to put liver on my shopping list. I use pig's liver because it's the cheapest and smelliest! Chicken livers would be sautéed and put in a warm liver and bacon salad here!! :D :D
