From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    Cakes made of wheat or barley were offered in the temple. They
    were salted, but unleavened (Ex. 29:2; Lev. 2:4). In idolatrous
    worship thin cakes or wafers were offered "to the queen of
    heaven" (Jer. 7:18; 44:19).
      Pancakes are described in 2 Sam. 13:8, 9. Cakes mingled with
    oil and baked in the oven are mentioned in Lev. 2:4, and "wafers
    unleavened anointed with oil," in Ex. 29:2; Lev. 8:26; 1 Chr.
    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
    (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 (Ex. 16:31), "cakes of figs" (1
    Sam. 25:18), "cake" as denoting a whole piece of bread (1 Kings
    17:12), and "a [round] cake of barley bread" (Judg. 7:13). In
    Lev. 2 is a list of the different kinds of bread and cakes which
    were fit for offerings.
