Some advice for the person who added 7 tsp. cornstarch.. Cornstarch only thickens when it comes to a boil so that's probably what the problem was. Read More

Very easy and ingredients are usually on hand. Good taste but I added 7 tsp. of cornstarch and it was still very thin. I made it to go on cinnamon bread pudding. Very tasty. Will make again and add more cornstarch. Read More

Taste is lovely! However I too had the problem with it being way too thin. Even after letting it boil for forty-five minutes! The amount of cornstarch to water ratio is way off. Read More

I made this according to the recipe and also found that is was very thin even after letting it boil. I added quite a bit more cornstarch and it was great. Great taste and consistancy will definately make again. Read More
