Collection: Biscuits

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 such as biscuits, cakes and cookies. Heat is gradually transferred from the surface of cakes, cookies, and pieces of bread to their centre. As heat travels through, it transforms batters and doughs into baked goods and more with a firm dry crust and a softer centre.
