My family LOVES homemade tapioca pudding. I don’t mind making it…but…”once in while” I get distracted and it gets burned. Today I tried a new recipe that tastes wonderful and eliminates most of chances of burning it because it is made in the crock pot! This was one of the those recipes I just had to try because making pudding in a crock pot just sounds like it wouldn’t work…but it did!
Here’s the recipe:
Put the following ingredients into your crock pot:
2 quarts milk
1 cup small pearl tapioca
1.5 cups sugar….you can use only 1 cup if you prefer
Cook these ingredients in your crock pot for 3 hours on high.
When the 3 hours are up, in a separate bowl mix together:
4 beaten eggs
2 t vanilla and 1/2 cup of the milk mixture from the crock pot.
Now whisk the egg mixture with the crock pot mixture together in the crock pot. Cook on high 20 more minutes. Chill and eat. It’s great alone, with whip cream or with fruit. Yummy!
A bonus for me is that it uses FOUR eggs….when you have chickens, you are always looking for egg recipes. If you are teaching kiddos, this recipe is a great for them to watch and participate in. It’s fun to see the liquid milk turn into a creamy pudding.
