Frequency of baking at home in Great Britain 2017

British adults can’t really be called baking enthusiasts. Baking as a term includes cakes, bread and biscuits. 48 percent of adults stated that they never bake and 19 percent baking not even once a month. One does wonder, how low numbers would drop if Christmas biscuits would be excluded. However, a few enthusiasts are very busy in their kitchens and go at it every day.

General cooking habits

The preparation of their own meals at home is roughly done by eighty percent of Brits and baking or roasting something in the oven is the most commonly used method to prepare food. 34 percent of all British adults use fresh or primary ingredients to cook every day. Depending on when they must cook during the week, between 29 and 38 percent of Brits have fun or even love to cook food. However, about a quarter of respondents feels like cooking is a chore.

Something quick to eat

It can therefore not be a surprise to see the millions of consumers that eat ready meals. Consistently over 55 percent of British consumers ate these types of meals often. Most commonly these individuals eat traditional British meals whether chilled or frozen.
