Is heading to Bribie Island to see if you can devour a one-kilogram doughnut on your to-do list? Does a coffee- or hot chocolate-filled doughnut sound like your perfect treat? Are you just a fan of giant baked goods and sweet treats-turned-beverage containers all year round? Then make plans to visit Kenilworth Island Bakery.

The Kenilworth Bakery chain has launched its third outpost — and the Sunshine Coast favourite's closest to Brisbane. This one sees brother-and-sister pair Nathan and Jenna Sanders set up shop at a beachfront store near the Bribie Island jetty, adding to the brand's OG spot in its namesake hinterland town and its coastal store at The Wharf in Mooloolaba

Everyone should love country bakeries for a pie, sausage roll, finger bun or lamington on any road trip, but Kenilworth Bakery isn't any old spot for a bite. If you're new to the bakery, it's particularly famous for its special menu item, which does indeed involve pouring coffee or hot chocolate into a doughnut.

Ordering a cuppa and a round orb of dough separately is a thing of the past here, then. Instead, the doughnuts are hollowed out so they can be filled with your choice of beverage (an espresso shot and milk if you go for the caffeinated option).

Also a highlight: one-kilogram bites both savoury and sweet. Cue chocolate-covered doughnuts, strawberry-iced doughnuts, jam- and cream-filled doughnuts, Nutella and cream doughnuts, Gaytime-flavoured versions and sausage rolls all on offer at that weight. If your tastebuds are tempted, you can take the challenge, which spans ordering one online in advance, finding it waiting when you arrive, eating it in-store, and then getting your money back and a plate on the bakery's wall of fame if you finish it all.

The Bribie Island menu features dogaccinnos, doggie biscuits and doggie donuts, too, as well as sourdough bread baked onsite.
