Probably `C-;`, which is bound to `flyspell-auto-correct-previous-word'.

You know, you can always use `C-h l` (view-lossage) to find out what
keys you just pressed. In Emacs 25, it even displays the commands the
keys you pressed are bound to.

Mmm... The obvious answer would be that `ispell-local-dictionary` is set
to "english" or some equivalent, but given that the corrected word is
"Afrika", which is obviously German, that can't be the case. So put me
down for a "beats me".
