I had bought pearl tapioca to make recipe#155189 and needed to use it up so it wouldn't spoil and found this recipe. I did get confused when I tried to cut it in half for the two of us and got even more confused trying to convert metric to US that I'd understand so made some major mistakes (to much butter for the most part) but it still came out sooooo good. For me it was a little sweet (I did get that part right) so I think next time I'll cut the sugar in half. Other than that it's a true winner and one I hope to make often.Reply
This is fabulous! What could be better than coconutty custard with chewy sago? It's a great combination of flavours and textures. Apart from running out of sago and so having to make a 70%-scale recipe it was very easy to make. It does make a LOT! My scaled-down version filled a 2l/2qt pyrex dish and 2 individual soufflé dishes. Luckily it doesn't puff up much because they were very full before baking.Reply
