     The following is the results of your search for cake.

Cake: Cakes made of wheat or barley were offered in the temple. They were salted, but unleavened (Exodus 29:2; Leviticus 2:4) In idolatrous worship thin cakes or wafers were offered "to the queen of heaven" (Jeremiah 7:18; 44:19) Pancakes are described in (2 Samuel 13:8,9) Cakes mingled with oil and baked in the oven are mentioned in (Leviticus 2:4) and "wafers unleavened anointed with oil," in (Exodus 29:2; Leviticus 8:26; 1 Chronicles 23:29) "Cracknels," a kind of crisp cakes, were among the things Jeroboam directed his wife to take with her when she went to consult Ahijah the prophet at Shiloh (1 Kings 14:3) Such hard cakes were carried by the Gibeonites when they came to Joshua (Joshua 9:5,12) They described their bread as "mouldy;" but the Hebrew word nikuddim, here used, ought rather to be rendered "hard as biscuit." It is rendered "cracknels" in (1 Kings 14:3) The ordinary bread, when kept for a few days, became dry and excessively hard. The Gibeonites pointed to this hardness of their bread as an evidence that they had come a long journey. We read also of honey-cakes (Exodus 16:31) "cakes of figs" (1 Samuel 25:18) "cake" as denoting a whole piece of bread (1 Kings 17:12) and "a [round] cake of barley bread" (Judges 7:13) In (Leviticus 2:1)ff is a list of the different kinds of bread and cakes which were fit for offerings.
