Literally, 'meal offering on a pan' (see Menachoth 63a; Rashi.) Machbath in Hebrew. Cf. Ezekiel 4:3. The oil was first placed in the pan (2:7), and then the meal was placed on it. More oil was then mixed with the meal, and it was kneaded with warm water (Yad, Maaseh HaKorbanoth 13:6; cf. Rashi, Menachoth 74b, s.v. Matan Shemen).
In all these offerings, the 1/10 ephah of flour was baked into ten loaves (Menachoth 76a; Yad, Maaseh HaKorbanoth 13:10; Rashi). Each of these loaves would then be broken into four pieces, each approximately the size of an olive (Sifra; Menachoth 75a,b; Yad, loc. cit.). Some say that any pieces larger than olive size must be broken up further (Rashi, Menachoth 75b; Rambam on Menachoth 6:4).
