I came up with an idea to put my Rayburn through its paces for the purposes of making a video. The idea was to bake a ginger cake, one of Delia Smith’s recipes, using my wood powered range cooker. However, my idea of showcasing the Rayburn went awry, this movie turned out more ‘Delia’ than ‘Dick’ [Dick Strawbridge]…ho hum! I had a deluge of footage of cutting, peeling, mixing, folding, spreading and cutting various food items, yet the Rayburn seems to be an incidental bystander. The food element got edited to the barebones and a two minute film and a ginger cake were born. Mind you, the cake turned out great!
Two tips are shown: control the Rayburn’s temperature with the ‘cold shelf’; soften the butter from the fridge with the use of the warming oven.
Based on the recipe by Delia Smith
