I loved this! I put all of the ingredients except the butter in a lidded jar, shook to blend & then proceeded with the recipe as written. I had a vanilla bean which added tons of flavor. I had n...

This one is another winner! Whisking the mixture while cooking is the key and you don't have any lumps or cooked on piece and clumps from the bottom of pan! This is so easy and my favorite!! You...

Excellent and easy. I, too, used soy milk and it came out great. I disolved the corn starch in a couple of tablespoons of milk before adding it and that eliminated any problems with lumps. This ...
