My best friend and I lived together for years and I think if I didn’t cook for her I think she would have starved. The only food she EVER bought for herself at the grocery was this tapioca pudding from some eastern European company that was gelatinous and had a really bizarre texture, but she loved it. Finally one day I broke down and made her homemade tapioca pudding and her eyes bugged out of her head! It was the same face my husband and son made when they tasted it yesterday for the first time.

I’ve tasted and cooked a bunch of tapioca pudding recipes over the years and I get frustrated by all the confusing directions. Why must it be so difficult?! Really delicious and creamy tapioca pudding is super easy to make and the perfect dessert for the entire family.

  1. I just tried baking it on a low heat 300 degress for an hour. It was a lot easier then stirring and stirring. But I haven’t perfected it yet – was my first time. My friend make a delicious rice pudding the same way but cooks that for 3 hours at 300 degrees.
