Survey Reveals Britain is a Nation of Bakers – Has Bake Off inspired you?
We Brits are baking-mad according to a new survey, which reveals that more than a third of us spend our time cooking yummy dishes and baking cakes.
34 per cent of us have a passion for cooking up a storm while other popular indoor activities include reading and watching the box, with many of us being influenced in the kitchen by shows like The Great British Bake Off.
First Utility, the largest independent gas and electricity supplier, surveyed 2,000 people as part of its new campaign celebrating the passions and pastimes people put their energy into. Meanwhile First Utility puts its energy into offering the lowest gas and electricity prices for consumers, with customers switching their energy to First Utility saving an average of £229¹ on their gas and electricity a year.
Television feeding the nation
Popular TV shows have inspired a lot of us to get creative in the kitchen, with more than a third of Brits wanting to develop their culinary skills after watching TV programmes like The Great British Bake Off. At the same time, more than 10% of us would like to try ballroom dancing after watching Strictly Come Dancing.
