Directions

  1. Stir together the milk, tapioca, sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir 5 minutes longer.
  2. Whisk 1 cup of the hot milk mixture into the beaten eggs, 2 tablespoons at a time until incorporated. Stir the egg mixture back into the tapioca until well mixed. Bring the pudding to a gentle simmer over medium-low heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer until the pudding becomes thick enough to evenly coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. The pudding may be served hot or poured into serving dishes and refrigerated several hours until cold.

I used minute tapioca instead of the quick cooking stuff (evidently there is a difference), so my pudding thickened much earlier than the recipe describes. Also I accidently added the vanilla at the beginning of the cooking process, and then added more at the end. However, the end result was still tasty!

Excellant! Reminds me of my grandmother's pudding. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. The second time I omitted the salt (didn't see a need for salt) and increased the vanilla to 1 teaspoon. Absolutely perfect! My granddaughters rave to everyone about their new favorite treat.

Made this using small pearl tapioca instead of quick. Soaked 1/2 C tapioca in 2C water (as per package) for 5 hours. Then drained, and continued with recipe. No salt, and 1t vanilla. Very good! We ate it hot, but thought it wasn't sweet enough. Strangely, it seemed sweeter cold. Anyway, it's very good and I like it with nutmeg sprinkled on top!!
