Baking is a method of preparing food that uses dry heat, typically in an oven, but can also be done in hot ashes, or on hot stones. The most common baked item is bread, but many other types of foods can be baked. Heat is gradually transferred "from the surface of cakes, cookies, and pieces of bread to their center. As heat travels through, it transforms batters and doughs into baked goods and more with a firm dry crust and a softer center". Baking can be combined with grilling to produce a hybrid barbecue variant by using both methods simultaneously, or one after the other. Baking is related to barbecuing because the concept of the masonry oven is similar to that of a smoke pit. Baking has traditionally been performed at home for day-to-day meals and in bakeries and restaurants for local consumption. When production was industrialized, baking was automated by machines in large factories. The art of baking remains a fundamental skill and is important for nutrition, as baked goods, especially bread, are a common and important food, both from an economic and cultural point of view. A person who prepares baked goods as a profession is called a baker. On a related note, a pastry chef is someone who is trained in the art of making pastries, desserts, bread, and other baked goods.
Baking refers to the cooking method that utilizes dry heat, usually in an oven, to transform ingredients into a variety of food items, such as bread, pastries, cookies, cakes, and pies. It involves combining and mixing ingredients, often including flour, eggs, sugar, fats, and leavening agents, and then subjecting them to heat for a certain duration until they are cooked and acquire a desired texture, flavor, and appearance. Baking is commonly associated with the use of an enclosed oven, where heat is evenly distributed to cook the food item from all sides.
