I ended up halving the recipe since only two people will be eating it. I also added around 1/2 cup extra milk very slowly right at the end. The result was amazing.

Absolutely delicious. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Will be using this for bananna pudding recipe. The next time, I will reduce the brown sugar by 1/2 cup and the white by 1/4 cup. Also, turn the heat down and watch your pudding when you add the milk/flour mixture because it burns real quick.

I just made this for dessert tonight. I had to taste it and OH MY GOSH! The flavor is so good. I put it in the refrigerator to cool and hopefully thicken up. Thanks for a great homemade recipe WJKing!
