From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Dough
     (batsek, meaning "swelling," i.e., in fermentation). The dough
     the Israelites had prepared for baking was carried away by them
     out of Egypt in their kneading-troughs (Ex. 12:34, 39). In the
     process of baking, the dough had to be turned (Hos. 7:8).
