Annie Mac had Celebrity British Bake Off viewers in hysterics this week when she tried her hand at baking for the Stand Up To Cancer special.
When tasked with making six raspberry donuts for the technical challenge, Annie took viewers by complete surprise when they heard her pronunciation of the word ‘kneading’.
The radio DJ was competing alongside off-duty bake-off host Matt Lucas, comedian Ed Gamble, and DJ Example when she explained she was going to have to knead her dough to get some air into it.
Eventually, solo presenter Noel Fielding decided to stop by Annie’s station to ask her about her unusual pronunciation of the word.
“Word on the street is that instead of kneading dough you keep saying ‘nedding’ dough”, he told her.
Laughing at her own mix-up, Annie replied: “Just because I don’t know the baking lingo!”
Reassuring Annie, Noel told her: “In my opinion, it’s an upgrade. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.”
Viewers at home were in stitches over Annie’s amusing pronunciation, taking to Twitter to discuss.
“This how I will FOREVER say #kneading from this day onwards #GBBO” wrote one fan.
“Wait, Annie Mac pronounces “kneading” “nedding”? #GBBO” asked another.
When the official Great British Bake Off Twitter account shared a clip of the blunder, Annie herself tweeted: “Always thought it was ‘nedding’ 😂”.
Annie is just one of a whopping 19 celebrities taking part in this year’s Stand Up To Cancer special.
In episode one,task master star Alex Horne, The Inbetweeners actor Blake Harrison, BBC Radio One presenter Clara Amfo, and TV presenter Emma Willis competed for the top spot, with Willis winning the competition.
