This recipe needs more detail to help those of us searching for a recipe for making "custard from scratch". My experience with cornstarch is that it tends to disappoint if not cooked following the hot/cold procedures. I need more detail in step 3 and also am not sure if it's turned out as far as texture. I will say my kids enjoyed making and eating it, although it took far longer than 10 minutes to cook on the stove.

After following the recipe to the word, I ended up with a saucepan full of liquid and lumpy corn-egg mixture. I was whisking the entire time yet the ingredients did not blend. Extremely disappointed.
