Bird Cakes

Bird Cakes

Time: 15 mins


  • 2 lbs hard vegetable fat or 2 lbs lard or 2 lbs suet
  • 3 cups bird seed (I buy the winter mix)
  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 1 cup cornmeal (millet, quinoa or semolina can be substituted)
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup currants (or other dried fruits)
  • 1 cup cracked corn (optional)


  • 1 In a large pan start melting the fat.
  • 2 When almost melted, take off the heat, add the rest of the listed ingredients and mix well.
  • 3 Let the mix cool enough for the seeds to be evenly distributed and not sink to the bottom.
  • 4 Fill your molds, cool until set and un-mold.
  • 5 IMPORTANT: Do not use old and used fat from your deep fryer because that is not good for the birds.
