Preparation and use

Classic Tapioca Pudding

  • 720ml / 2 1/4 pints milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 75g Sago
  • 115g white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

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.

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.
