Tapioca Pudding

"This was my 78 years young grandmother's recipe.  When my oldest daughter was 3 she said she wanted some of grandma's fluffy pudding. I called my grandmother and she gave me the recipe. Her last words to the recipe were: 'Let Christi eat all she wants!'" - Linda

1 c. large pearl tapioca
4 c milk
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 c milk
1 1/2 c granulated sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 flour
1 T sugar or 1/2 tsp cream of tartar


  1. Soak tapioca in 2 cups of water overnight.
  2. Put tapioca in a large pan with 2 cups of milk and 1/2 cups sugar.  Cook over medium heat until tapioca is clear (15 to 20 minutes). Stir often to avoid sticking.
  3. Separate eggs. Put yolks in a bowl.
  4. Beat egg yolks. Add 1 cup sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Stir in 2 cups milk. Add to first tapioca mixture. Cook until thick.
  5. Add 1 T sugar or 1/2 tsp cream of tarter to egg whites and beat until stiff peaks form.
  6. When tapioca is thick, pour hot tapioca mixture into beaten egg whites.
  7. Add vanilla and fold egg whites into pudding.
  8. Eat it hot or cold.

    Options for GF: use cornstarch, for dairy free use coconut milk and egg substitute for egg yolks (without egg whites it is just not as fluffy).
