      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!!!

      I also had the cornstarch lumping problem, which I could have solved by reading the reviews before I made it. It did turn out ok and the texture ended up similar to tapioca pudding. The main reason I marked this down to 3 stars was that it wasn't sweet enough and it could use more vanilla. Next time I make this I'll use the other reviewers' corn starch "trick", add at least a 1/4c. of sugar, 2 tbsp of vanilla (if you have real vanilla extract this might be too much), and a bit of butter or pinch of salt for some flavor contrast.

      Quick and easy! Loved that this is sweetened with honey instead of sugar. Made the Butterscotch version and thought it could have used more molasses, but then I love molasses. Look forward to trying vanilla and coconut versions. Would suggest stirring a bit of hot pudding into the eggs before adding to the pudding mixture. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
