I don't like tapioca pudding made with cooked egg so I came up with this recipe. Evaporated milk gives a richer, creamier taste and texture. I like my tapioca thick but if you don't, feel free to add water a tablespoon at a time toward the end of cooking, since the pudding will thicken more upon cooling. You can also add more or less sugar and spices, according to your taste.

  1. Mix tapioca, brown sugar, milk, water, salt, spices and diced apple in a two-quart saucepan and let sit for five minutes.
  2. Cook over medium low heat, bringing it to a boil and simmer 8-10 minutes till thickened and apples are al dente.
  3. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla.
  4. Eat warm or chill. Pudding thickens as it cools.
