How to say Dr Oetker

Unless, you are a native German, it is very likely that even if you are familiar with one of the products that you may be unsure as to how you actually pronounce Dr Oetker. Oetker is a common surname in Germany, but in the UK and Ireland it is fair to say there are not many Oetkers listed in the local phone directory. It really is quite easy to say - it is pronounced Dr Urtker. Simply substituting the UR for the OE makes it easy to say.
