The recipe I found turned out to be pretty good, especially when eaten warm, but after the pudding cooled it became a little rubbery because of the cornstarch. So I modified the recipe to use flour instead of corn starch. The result is a nice rich and creamy pudding that tastes good hot or cold.
My husband loves cooked pudding and this is a lot less expensive than the normal pudding mixes we used to buy. I think we will be eating a lot more pudding in the months to come.
