St. Elizabeth of Hungary is the patron saint of baking. Her feast day is November 17th.

Elizabeth was in an arranged marriage by her father to Ludwig IV of Thuringia, a German nobleman. When she was 4 years old, Elizabeth was sent away for education at the court of the Landgrave of Thuringia. In 1221 she married Ludwig and had 3 children with him, two who became members of nobility and the third entering the religious life. Throughout her life, Elizabeth lived a life full of prayer and a service to the poor.
