Summary - A girl who baked for the fairies.

A girl got lost and entered a fairy hill. She was made to do the baking, and was not allowed to leave until the flour chest was empty. The level of the flour remained constant, until one fairy told her the secret. She followed his instructions, the chest emptied, and she was freed. When she got home she found that she could work much faster than anybody else.
