In my case, the cornstarch just lumped together, no matter how much I mixed, so it didn't thicken. In the end, I mixed more cornstarch with a few tbsp of water in a cup and added this mixture to the pudding. It thickened well after that, but had a slightly strange texture, probably because I cooked it a few minutes after adding the eggs so that it would thicken. So next time, I'll mix the starch with a small amount of milk first; also I took LonghornMama's suggestion about adding the eggs. The taste was great and it was easy, so I'll try this again. **Update: I mixed the cornstarch with 1/2 cup of the milk and poured it in. This was MUCH better than before, and the texture was marvelous, like a pudding should be. Thanks!!!
