You sure it is not a bun?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mch_kharkov

and in Italian does it also mean that the cake (bun) will eventually scream and pee?

No, that's not in "forno", it's incinta. :-)

"Bun in the oven" is a euphemism. Even in England we wouldn't literally put a baby in the oven!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PolarBear667564

But we could literally "throw the baby out with the bathwater "

But bun is not accepted! Surprise!

Clearly I heard her say 'nella.'

Me too. i think it is put in there to confuse us


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DonnaSidoti

me too! this is very frustrating. I've listened to her 10 times and she keeps saying NelLA!!!!

My Italian wife overheard me saying this and thinks it should be 'al forno'. Can anyone confirm?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tom1159

Using a translator app ...al forno, ...in forno and ...nel forno all translate to "... in the oven". It could be a regional preference.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Krestazza

al forno might be a regional/dialectal usage but it's not "proper" italian


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BampaOwl

Al forno is a term I'd expect to find on a menu indicating a cooking style. It's definitely Lasagne al forno!

Dimentico una torta nel forno= I'm burning 1000 calories in less than 1 hour!

Again the audio says "nella" and not "nel."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hanna460805

Now it does not accept the english translation even it is in the same format as in the correct answer


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Terry745570

I hear the a on una torta and nella. But its nel!! Makes it so hard!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Georgi1488

Why is furnace not correct?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/nayrad

I said "in the oven" and it marked it wrong. Reported


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Monimaboo

I said that and it was correct
