How thick is pastry cream supposed to be?

I guess I was expecting thick custard, but I ended up with something like pureed potatoes when it was freshly cooked and still hot.

I used 2 T flour, 3 T cornstarch, 2 egg yolks, and 1 egg for 2 cups milk, loosely following this recipe: http://www.chow.com/recipes/30347-str...
