A Kmart appliance is going viral online after people have started to share an incredible hack to make delicious treats.

The $20 Sausage Roll Maker has always been a cult buy from the bargain retailer, with over 630 five-star reviews on the company’s website.

However, people have started to think outside the box with the non-stick appliance and are now showing off their doughnut creations in a Kmart Facbeook group online.

“Had a go at making donuts with my Kmart sausage roll make. Was very popular in my house,” the woman wrote.

She said she simply popped the White Wings Donut Bites mixture into the sausage roll maker for seven minutes and was delighted with the result.

Others also posted photos of their own delights, with one person saying: “Jumped on the sausage roll maker doughnuts bandwagon and OMG they turned out better than I expected and tasted just divine. Gawd Bless Kmart Sausage Roll Maker. I can now bake.”

She said she used Betty Crocker cake mix (made to instructions), strawberries sliced, and caramel buds finely chopped.

She also cooked it in her sausage roll maker for seven minutes and let them cool completely before slicing them.

To garnish her doughnuts, she put icing sugar in the middle and adding strawberries before scattering a dusting of icing and caramel buds.
