Baking is a food cooking method that uses prolonged dry heat by convection, rather than by thermal radiation, normally in an oven, but also in hot ashes, or on hot stones. The most common baked item is bread but many other types of foods are baked.

In the food context, baking is a cooking method that involves dry heat applied to food in an oven, resulting in the food being cooked evenly and developing a crispy or crunchy outer layer.

Some examples of foods that are commonly baked include:
