This makes a wonderfully thick tapioca pudding with lots of tapioca in it. It's almost like a tapioca cream. To my way of thinking this makes just enough for one, but if you want to double it to share, use the entire egg rather than 2 yolks.


  1. In a saucepan, combine the milk, sugar, tapioca, and egg; let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil.
  3. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
  4. Spoon or pour into serving dishes, and allow to cool at least 5 minutes.
  5. May be cooled longer and/or in the refrigerator. May be served warm or cold. (I like warm my husband prefers chilled.).
