Cantiga 157 of the Cantigas de Santa Maria of Alfonso X

The Pilgrims to Rocamadour whose Meal was Stolen
Some pilgrims lodged at an inn.
While they were absent, the landlady stole some meal from their supplies and made fritters.
She tried to eat a fritter, but her knife pierced her jaw.
Doctors could not extract the knife.
When the woman went to Rocamadour and confessed the theft, a priest was able to remove it.
News of the miracle spread and all gave thanks to the Virgin.
