Tapioca Pudding (using Minute Tapioca)

Total Time

This is comfort food at its finest. I love it hot, I love it warm, but I absolutely adore it ice-cold from the refrigerator. Personally, I think it belongs in it's own food group. But perhaps I'm biased. :D Hmmm, I think I might need to go make some tapioca pudding after posting this recipe... DH loves it when I make this, and I like that I don't have to fuss with soaking the tapioca overnight. I never remember to do that... (P.S. Decisions, decisions...they want to know how many servings? I suppose I should say something other than one, huh? LOL)


  1. Mix sugar, tapioca, milk and egg in a saucepan, let set 5 minutes.
  2. Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly, til mixture comes to a full boil.
  3. Remove from heat, then stir in vanilla.
  4. Cool 20 minutes, then stir.
  5. Serve warm or cold.

Ohhhhhhh YUM :) This really hit the spot! Although unlike Elmotoo, it wasn't sweet enough for us, so next time I will increase the sugar. I also used half milk, half evaporated canned milk. It was delicious! Thanks!!!

Perfect! it was a smidge sweet for my tastes. I loved that it was so fast & easy. I think I prefer the long cooking tapioca better but if you're short on time, this is THE way to go! I doubled this & still didn't get any. Thanks UC!
