How to Make Suet Cake

Homemade Suet Cake
Servings 1 Suet Cake


  • Ground Beef
  • Corn Meal
  • Raw Oats
  • Chopped Apple Pieces
  • Birdseed
  • Peanut Butter


  1. 1. Rendered beef fat. When I am making a dinner and it calls for ground beef before I season the beef I cook off the fat and drain it into a bowl. Remove any pieces of meat that may have got through your colander.
  2. 2. In the beef fat mix in 1 Tbsp corn meal, 1 Tbsp of raw oats,  a handful of chopped fresh apple pieces, 1 cup of birdseed, and 1 dollop of peanut butter.
  3. 3. Set mixture into a mold or in a bowl.
  4. 4. Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate till fat turns solid. I refrigerate mine overnight.
  5. *Depending on how much beef fat you will need to adjust measurements of ingredients listed above.
