Recipe for dog liver cake treats


by Erik Prins


In an earlier post about dog training, I mentioned high-value dog treats. Whilst training your dog it is critical to get the response you need. These high-value treats are treats your dog may not get often or they will work to earn the treat. This recipe is so simple anyone can do this.

5 ingredients needed

For this recipe, you only need a hand full of ingredients

  • 200grams (2cups) of oatmeal
  • 300grams (2 cups) of plain flour
  • A quarter cup of olive oil
  • 4 eggs
  • About400-500 grams of liver (chicken, pork lamb)

Prepare the baking tray which should be around 30x20x5 centimetres in size. Cut the baking paper to size to fit the baking tray. Switch on your oven and preheat to 160°C

Bowl with oats and flour mixed together

Place the oatmeal in a blender and briefly (15-30 seconds) blend the oatmeal. Add the flour to the oatmeal and again blend for about 15-30 seconds. Transfer the dry ingredients to a large bowl.

Now it is time to cut the liver into smaller pieces, a couple of centimetres in size. Place these in the blender and blend for 15-30 seconds. Now add the eggs and olive oil and bland for about, you guessed it 15-30 seconds. Transfer this into the large bowl with the flour and oatmeal mixture.

Once you mixed the dry and wet ingredients in a large bowl. Make sure it is mixed well, and no dry flour is visible. Transfer the mixture to the baking tray you prepared earlier. I always bang the tray on the kitchen top to make sure there are no air bubbles left.

Place the tray in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes. I prefer them not well done so they retain some moisture this helps during training as your dog will be able to nibble on the treat from your hand.


Once the liver treatment is cooled off I cut it into strips. Which I then put in a bag ready to go in the freezer. I take out of the freezer what I need and then cut them into smaller bite-size treats. For most of you, this could last you 3-4 weeks.

If your dog has an allergy, make sure you check that the ingredients are suitable for your dog.
