The decision has been made – I’ll be making a luscious liver cake for little Madison’s first birthday. Mom calls Madison a food snob as she doesn’t like to eat, not even treats! Having watched a lot of baking shows, I decided to do what the TV professionals do – sit down with Madison and discuss her cake to be sure I make exactly what she has in mind. A puppy only turns one once, so this needs to be right!
I think every dog loves liver, most humans do not. Mom was not thrilled about my baking with liver, but she let me do it. The cake is so easy as it consists of just three ingredients, whole wheat flour, liver, and eggs.
Pureeing the liver is the first step in making the cake batter. I put it in my food processor and let it whirl around until it was nice and smooth. It’s hard not to dive face first into the liver because it smells so good!
Next I put the pureed liver, flour, and eggs in my mixing bowl and mixed them up. I kept on stirring until everything was well blended.
You will need to decided what kind of cake form you want to use. I decided to go with my silicone large paw molds, but if you use muffin tins or a cake pan, don’t forget to grease the pans well before pouring in the batter! The batter was the perfect amount for six large paw cakes. At this point, I couldn’t help myself. Taste testing was unavoidable! The liver cake batter tastes amazing!
Once the liver cakes were popped into the oven, the birthday girl to be showed up. Baking liver is pretty smelly, which is why I think she came to the kitchen. The poor thing was waiting and waiting for what seemed like days, not just thirty minutes!
I removed the cakes from the oven, let them cool, and then removed them from their molds. The luscious liver cakes were absolutely perfect. We can’t wait to give them a try! Stay tuned for the birthday party later this week to see how we like them! If you would like to make them for your dogs, click here to download my recipe!
