Beat in eggs one at a time, beating hard after each addition.
Stir in milk and flour combination alternately.
Pour batter into 2 greased 8 inch round cake pans and bake in a preheated 375° oven for 25 minutes or until cake pulls away from sides of pan.
Cool.
To make the filling; Scald half and half.
Combine sugar, flour, and salt in a bowl and stir in the hot milk until smooth.
Add to egg very slowly, beating constantly.
Cook over boiling water, stirring constantly, until custard thickens.
Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, and cool.

VARIATION: To make Washington Pie, put raspberry jam or jelly between the layers in place of the custard, and shower the top with confectioners' sugar.
