The expression “Bakers Dozen,” originated with King Henry VII, of England. He ordered bakers who sold underweight loaves to be beheaded, and so, in order to save their necks, bakers began the practice of adding an extra loaf to each order of twelve loaves, just to be sure.

I had actually always wondered about the origins of that phrase.

Thanks for the knowledge, Random!

I love donuts with such a passion... I had some chocolate cake earlier for my husband's Birthday ... Almost as good as a chocolate donut.

And beheading for underweight loaves? You've got to be kidding!

P.S.
I always thought bakers made an extra one so they could taste whatever they made... Shows how much of a piggy I am <3
