Problem - the Recipe says to add conrstarch, but nowhere does it say how much, not even in the list of ingredients.

I noticed the lack of cornstarch in the ingredients too, but tried it with 2 Tablespoons. That seemed to work well, and it was very good and easy, but I'll try 1 Tablespoon next. The vanilla seemed like way too much -- I used 1 T. and will try 1 1/2 t. next. Perhaps that first tablespoon of vanilla should have been the cornstarch.

On the recipe for Microwave custard, it calls for corn starch, but it doesn't give the measurement.

Thank you.
