A GREAT British Bake Off contestant revealed that a friend butters their Weetabix, which has sparked outrage online.
On Twitter, Michael Chakraverty, who competed on the show’s tenth season in 2019, expressed his surprise.
However, Nigella Lawson, the queen of cooking, defended the unusual flavor combination, and dozens of others have followed suit.
“This week I discovered a friend BUTTERS their WEETABIX,” said Michael, who now has his own podcast and Netflix show.
“Can you imagine?!”
“When I was a kid, we used to get Weetabix spread with butter and jam after school,” Nigella, 62, quickly responded.
Others agreed, with one recalling 1950s and 1960s childhood snacks.
“It was our normal fodder,” she said.
“Occasionally, we’d add a sprinkling of sugar.”
“Another meal, a brown or tomato sauce sandwich,” says the narrator.
“If there are no teeth marks in the butter, you need more butter!” said another.
One hit back: “I love buttered Weetabix!”
But others vehemently disagreed.
“However, it is the driest substаnce known to mаn,” one person pointed out.
“How does butter mаke it moist enough to eаt?” you might wonder.
