“Baking” is a kind of cooking that usually involves heating something for a long time in an oven. We bake cakes, cookies and bread. To be specific, baking is cooking using a dry heat without a direct flame. We also bake clay to harden it.

The sun can also bake things. “I’m baking out here.” “The plastic melted when it was left baking in the sun.”
