Dictionary Mode: easton:Bake
Bake @ The duty of preparing bread was usually, in ancient times, committed to the females or the slaves of the family Genesis:18:6; Leviticus:26:26; 1Samuel:8:13); but at a later period we find a class of public bakers mentioned Hosea:7:4-6; Jeremiah:37:21). The bread was generally in the form of long or round cakes Exodus:29:23; 1Samuel:2:36), of a thinness that rendered them easily broken Isaiah:58:7; Matthew:14:19 Matthew:26:26; Acts:20:11). Common ovens were generally used; at other times a jar was half-filled with hot pebbles, and the dough was spread over them. Hence we read of "cakes baken on the coals" (kjvKings:19:6), and "baken in the oven" Leviticus:2:4). (See BREAD
Bake-meats @ baked provisions Genesis:40:17), literally "works of the baker," such as biscuits and cakes.
