From The Archives: Tapioca Pudding

I don't want to spend all summer on the computer. My kids are still young and I want to do fun things with them. At the same time, I don't want the blog to sit with nothing new.

My solution: Go through the archives and share some of my favorite projects from my first year of blogging. It won't necessarily be new content, but most of you weren't around way back then, so it will seem new.

I will also try to post one new project each week as well.

So here we go:

Tapioca Pudding! I absolutely love the stuff. There is something about the creamy pudding with the little pearls of tapioca....I'm wishing I had a bowl right now. It's actually one of the better-for-you desserts that I make. As long as you remember portion control, which I usually don't.

Here's the recipe, if you want a step by step, please see my original Tapioca Pudding post.
For a printable version, click here.

Tapioca Pudding
 1/2 . small pearl tapioca (not instant)
3 c. whole milk
1/4 t. salt
2 eggs
3/4 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla

Soak tapioca overnight. Combine tapioca, milk and salt in a pot. Stir until boiling. Simmer 5 minutes on low heat, adding sugar gradually. Beat eggs in a separate bowl. Mix in some of the tapioca mixture into the eggs. Then add to pan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Simmer until thick. Cool 15 minutes. Add vanilla.

I'm nowhere near perfect, but I've come a long way with my photo's don't you think? Go check out the original post to see the difference. {I won't be re-doing all the pictures, but I just happened to make this recently.}

  7. I love tapioca, too! Its so hard to remember portion control, usually I eat the whole thing. Now that my kids like it I'm doubling up the recipe so I don't have to share. Good stuff.
