    Molly53's Note:

    A luscious old fashioned cake filling from the US Regional Cookbook, Chicago Culinary Arts Institute, 1947. Enough filling for two 9-inch layers, 2 dozen cream puffs or eclairs, or a 9 inch pie. Cooking time is approximate and cooling time not included in preparation time.

      Delicious! This was the first time I've made a custard. I used it for a 9 inch layer cake and halved the recipe since I only needed one layer. I used only the egg yolks and I microwaved the milk. It turned out perfectly!

      i followed the recipe exactly, (using flour and 2 whole eggs) which is unusual for me, ad the custard turned out great. tastes fabulous, no lumps. i thought it thickened up enough while cooling but after i began stirring in the vanilla i realized it was not thick enough for filling a probs though, just put it back on the double boiler for a few more mins and voila!!! perfect for filling the cake i made. thanks for posting.
