They are extremely filling and have a wonderful depth of flavour.

Recipe Overview

Preparation Time

Less than 30 minutes

Cooking Time

Less than 30 minutes

Serving Size

8 x Beef Flake Cakes

Main Ingredients:

200g Beef Flakes

90g Lard

40g Honey

Tallow or Lard - to grease a silicone mould


1 x 'Chocolate' Shape per Nest

1 x Oxtail Jelly Shape per Nest

Frozen Lard


Recipe Instructions

Make the Beef Flakes as per the recipe instructions.


In a glass bowl add the beef flakes and the lard (this should be soft). Use the back of a spoon to cream the lard into the beef flakes until all the beef flakes are coated in lard and they are moist.


Next add the honey into the bowl and use the spoon to mix the ingredients well together so that all the beef flakes are nicely coated in honey.


Grease an 8 hole circular silicone mould tray with tallow or lard.


Divide the contents of the bowl equally between the 8 holes of the mould.


Once the mixture is in each hole, use your fingers or the back of a spoon to shape the beef flakes in each hole into a nest shape with a slightly lower centre and higher sides. Repeat this process for all the beef flake holes.


Place the silicone mould tray in the fridge and allow the Beef Flake Cakes to harden for 1-2 hours.


Decoration Instructions:


Remove the Beef Flake Cakes carefully from the silicone mould and place on a serving plate.

Place 1 x 'Chocolate' shape and 1 x Oxtail Jelly Shape in the centre of each cake.


Grate a little frozen lard over the top of each Beef Flake Cake.





Ideally, purchase your meat and fat from pasture raised animals that are Nitrate, Nitrite & Additive Free.


Any honey should be of organic quality, and is only recommended in small quantities for those who have recovered from any kind of health condition.
