How to Bake 1945

7 mins United Kingdom

A compact oven plays host to a surprisingly large range of baked goods in this government-sponsored instructional film. Learn how some careful forward planning can help maximise the heat from your oven to roast a joint, bake in batches and make more milk pudding than one family could possibly ever eat. While the focus is on fuel saving rather than recipes, there are also top tips on the best way to baste, methods for cooking delicious root veg, and how to prepare a potato for baking.
