Baking

Additional Links
The Old Testament speaks most often of the baking of bread and cakes, which were the main part of the meal for Hebrews and Canaanites alike (Genesis 19:3; Exodus 12:39; Leviticus 26:26; 1 Kings 17:12-13; Isaiah 44:15 ). The bread of the presence (Leviticus 24:5 ) and other offerings (Leviticus 2:4-6 ) were also baked. See Bread; Bread of the Presence; Cooking and Heating; Food and Meals in the Bible; Kneading, Kneading Bowl.
