English - Etymology 1

From Middle English _cake_, from Old Norse _kaka_ (“cake”) (compare Norwegian _kake_, Icelandic/Swedish _kaka_, Danish _kage_), from Proto-Germanic _*kakǭ_ (“cake”), from Proto-Indo-European _*gog_ (“ball-shaped object”) (compare Romanian _gogoașă_ (“doughnut”) and _gogă_ (“walnut, nut”); Lithuanian _gúoge_ (“head of cabbage”). Related to cookie, kuchen, and quiche.

USAGE NOTES * In North America, a _biscuit_ is a small, soft baked bread similar to a scone but not sweet. In the United Kingdom, a _biscuit_ is a small, crisp or firm, sweet baked good — the sort of thing which in North America is called a _cookie_. (Less frequently, British speakers refer to _crackers_ as _biscuits_.) In North America, even small, layered baked sweets like Oreos are referred to as _cookies_, while in the UK, only those _biscuits_ which have chocolate chips, nuts, fruit, or other things baked into them are also called _cookies_. * Throughout the English-speaking world, thin, crispy, salty or savoury baked breads like these are called _crackers_, while thin, crispy, sweet baked goods like these and these are _wafers_. * Both the US and the UK distinguish _crackers_, _wafers_ and _cookies_/_biscuits_ from _cakes_: the former are generally hard or crisp and become soft when stale, while the latter is generally soft or moist and becomes hard when stale.
