[Avodah] It wasn't Matzah???

When I was learning AhS Yomi (tomorrow's first se'if), this really
befuddled me.

OC 261:5 says that dough baked in the sun isn't called lechem, can't
be lechem oni, and thus not Matzah. Doesn't this rule out the batzeiq
that baked on the backs of our ancestors when rushing out of Egypt? Even
though this is one of the things Matzah commemorates?!

Tir'u baTov!
