Social media meltdown over Kmart doughnut hack
IT'S the savvy electronic that can create pies, pizzas and even pancakes in minutes.
But it's the concept of creating a Nutella filled doughnut in less than 10 minutes that's put Kmart fans into a meltdown.
Posting to the Kmart Mums Australia Facebook page, group member Linda says the discount department store's $29 pie maker has the ability to create fluffy treats in just eight minutes.
The pie maker - which has been devised to create your traditional pie - has been used by various members who like to get creative with their ingredients.
Instead of using pastry and mince in the shells of the pie maker, some users have shared ways to create tasty treats by using bread, eggs, flour, pancake mixture and even muffin batter to cook both sweet and savoury dishes.
The Nutella doughnut post - which has received more than 600 comments - requires just eight ingredients to create.
"I would never have thought of that. What a great idea," one person commented.
"The next recipe to try!"
One user had her own take on the sweet treat, and instead of using Nutella - she subbed in a small piece of solid chocolate into the centre and used pancake mixture instead.
"I'm using my pie maker for cupcakes & muffins more than pies," one person commented.
"I made them too but put maple syrup in the middle," another added.
"Made quiche in mine, school lunch sorted," one woman suggested for a savory option.
