Grandmother's Tapioca Pudding

Marylin loves the Tapioca Pearls and created this recipe to replicate the pudding her grandmother use to make.

  • 1/3 cup Small Pearl Tapioca
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 4 cups Milk (1 or 2 %)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract


In a 4 quart saucepan soak the tapioca pearls in the water for 60 minutes. Whisk in milk, sugar and eggs. Let stand 30-60 minutes. Let mixture come to a full rolling boil and stir often as is cooks with a wire whisk. Remove from stove and let set 60 minutes and do not stir.

When cool, add vanilla and serve. Pudding thickens as it cools. Makes 6 servings.

*To make a Chocolate Tapioca Pudding, add 2 Tb Cocoa Powder and an additional 1 Tb Sugar when adding milk and sugar to soaked tapioca.

Very good! The only thing I did differently was to add 1/8 tsp of salt and used half and half instead of milk. Love this pudding and will certainly make again!
