Why is a baker's dozen 13?

User Avatar
No one’s completely sure. The most common theory is that since there were harsh punishments for medieval bakers who shorted their customers, they took to throwing in an extra item in case any of them were accidentally a little light (many of them didn’t have scales, so they couldn’t tell exactly). Punishments for medieval bakers were kind of wild—ranging from fines to getting dunked in the river—so the extra caution makes a lot of sense.

There is not enough information to answer this accurately since different recipes call for different amounts of sugar. If one batch takes 1/4 cup of sugar, then 13 batches will take 3 and 1/4 cups of sugar.
