directions

  • In a medium bowl soak tapioca in water overnight (about 8 hours). Drain water.
  • In a double boiler heat milk until no longer cold. Stir in salt and tapioca. Continue heating until small bubbles appear at the sides of the pan. Cover, turn heat to low and cook for 1 hour. Make sure the milk does not simmer or boil.
  • In a medium mixing bowl wisk together sugar and egg yolks until light in color. While whisking add a little bit of the hot milk mixture. Then add the egg yolk mixture to the hot milk mixture, stirring constantly. Place the double boiler over medium heat and cook until tapioca mixture is very thick, about 15 minutes.
  • Gently fold in beaten egg whites into the hot tapioca mixture. Stir in vanilla. Serve warm or chilled.

    With new recipes being created or updated every day of the year, it's refreshing and important to give classic recipes a revisit. I grew up eating home-made from scratch tapioca pudding so it was just a delight to make it myself. Yes, it does take a bit of time, but what good recipe doesn't require some effort. The end results are smooth, creamy and addictive. Thanks, Cupcake Princess, for featuring a dessert that should be made far more often! Made for Spring PAC 2010.

    It may take some time, but it is so worth having tapioca pudding made from scratch.
