  1. Hi,
    Made the donuts today
    I used a 3.4oz box of didn’t say, is that right?
    The batter was dense and and kinda sticky..I added about 6T of milk to thin..still kinda gooey..not a typical batter..I used silicone donut pans
    They baked up well, but a pretty soft..kinda unique texture
    Is that typical?
    Can you give me your advice?
    I really want these to work! I love the idea using chai drink mix!

    1. Yes the batter is definitely thick and sticky. It has a very soft texture because of the pudding mix.
