Recipe Overview

Preparation Time

Less than 30 minutes

Cooking Time

Less Than 30 minutes

Serving Size

6 x Mini Liver Pancakes

(8cm Diameter, or makes 9 x 5cm Diameter)

Main Ingredients:

200g Lamb Liver

100g Lard (plus extra for frying and greasing)

Salt to Taste (optional)

Recipe Instructions

Rinse your lamb liver under running water and remove any silvery membrane from it.


Cut the liver into smaller pieces and add it to a mini blender, together with the lard and a touch of salt (optional).


Blend all the ingredients together until the mixture is nice and homogenous.


Heat up a small amount of lard in a crepe pan or frying pan on medium-high heat. Brush the fat around the pan using a pastry brush. Once the fat has melted completely and the pan is nice and hot, turn the frying pan heat down to medium (#6 on my hob which goes up to #9).


Grease the inside of a pastry circle. Place the circle on the centre of the pan and use a spoon or spatula to add 1 heaped tablespoon of the mixture into the pastry circle. Use your spoon to level the mixture off.


Cook the pancake for 40 - 50 seconds initially. Carefully remove the pastry circle from around the pancake. Use a spatula to carefully flip the pancake over. Cook for a further 30 - 45 seconds approximately (To Note: the time needed may be less once the pan is nice and hot, so keep an eye on the pancake).


Use a spatula to remove the pancake from the pan and place it on a serving plate.


Add a little extra fat around the pastry circle, place it in the centre of the frying pan again, and repeat the above steps to make the remaining 5 pancakes.


Your Mini Liver Pancakes are now ready! Enjoy!


These pancakes can be made in various shapes. Use different pastry cutters for different effects. If you simply use a spoon to add the batter to the frying pan, you arrive at a more oval looking pancake.

If you soak the liver in a little salted water for a few hours prior to cooking, it will give the liver an even milder flavour.


Ideally, purchase your offal and fat from pasture raised animals that are Nitrate, Nitrite & Additive Free and use white sea salt or rock salt that contains no anticaking agents or other additives.

These mini pancakes taste delicious warm. They are still a little pink and juicy on the inside and have an extremely mild flavour.


If you don't happen to have any lard to hand, then simply use tallow or another animal fat.

For a perfect PKD Ratio consider adding 14g meat on top of each mini liver pancake.
