Yummy Ziggy Cakes! Taz: English_Cocker_Spaniel
Here's the recipe our mom sent Boo's mom for the yummy Ziggy cakes. We call them that after a Namerican cocker frend who once ate a whole duzzen of 'em fithout gettin' sick! We think they are great too, even if the humans think they are disgusting. We are sincerely grateful to Donna Stekli, of A*Starz Keeshonds for providing the original recipe; it is being reprinted with her permission, from the February, 1994 issue of the Catoctin Kennel Club Newsletter.
Chipper's (and Tia, Fang and Ziggy's, and now Boo's) Favorite Cupcakes 1 lb beef liver ½ C sunflower or corn oil 1 C brown rice, dry 2 eggs 1 C pureed vegetables (spinach, carrots, etc) 1 6½ oz can tuna (in water) 2 C oatmeal (regular or quick) 1 C cornmeal 1 garlic clove Water sufficient to mix
Cook brown rice in water according to package directions. Process beef liver, tuna and garlic in a food processor or blender until liquified. Add veggies, oil and eggs. Mix together rice, oatmeal, and cornmeal in a LARGE bowl. Make a well in the center, add the liver mixture, and enough water to obtain a stiff (muffin-like) batter. Spoon into paper muffin cups (mom says, use an ice cream scoop) and bake at 350oF for 30 to 35 minutes. Freeze any not to be used within 5-6 days. Makes 1½ dozen regular-sized cupcakes.
Mom sends along this note: "I recommend using a food processor for everything, and processing the liver when it is still slightly frozen makes it a bit easier to deal with. Donna says this is "not a pretty sight", which is the understatement of the year, especially after I spray-painted my kitchen walls with the stuff!" However, the Gang duzzn't mind, as long as we get to lick up after it!
