Fluffy Tapioca Pudding

 Do you love tapioca pudding?  It's one of my all-time favorite desserts, and pure comfort food.  My late beloved mom loved it, my sister loves it, my son that lives here with me, loves it, and so do I.  My mom was so happy when she found a box of tapioca pudding mix, that Kroger sells, and you just add milk and cook.    It's really good, too, but I still prefer the one where you add all the ingredients.   I'd love to have you join me for my virtual tea party, and share some pudding with me.  It's still chilly and dreary here, so we'll sit by the fire.  You can tell me what projects you're working on.  I'll tell you that I've been baking, cooking, and making jam.  

The pretty stemware that's holding the tapioca,  belonged to my maternal grandmother, and the plate underneath, was given to me by my mom.

 My friend, Mary, gave me this darling bunny teacup.  Isn't it the sweetest??!!  I love the springtime colors, the bunny, and the scalloped edge of the cup.  It brings joy to sip tea from a new teacup!

 The saucer is every bit as cute as the cup!

 Look at all this assortment of teas that my friend, also, gave me!  Would you like Passionfruit, Very Berry, Sai Mu Dan, Jasmine, Lemon Ginger, or Chun Mei?

 My teapot coordinates with my teacup, don't you think?

 My dear Mom embroidered this tablecloth when I was just a little girl.  It's still is such beautiful condition, and I'm happy to have it.   

Please enjoy some comfort food and stay safe, and healthy.  God Bless All of You!

Fluffy Tapioca Pudding

Fluffy Tapioca Pudding

I think I could eat this every single day of my life! The recipe is on the box of Kraft Minute Tapioca, but I've changed the steps in preparing it. I've also made the pudding using pearl tapioca, but that requires soaking overnight.


  • 1 egg, separated
  • 6 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 3 tablespoons Minute Tapioca
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


How to cook Fluffy Tapioca Pudding

  1. Mix tapioca, milk, egg yolk, and 3 tablespoons sugar in a medium saucepan.
  2. Let stand for five minutes.
  3. While the above mixture is standing, beat the egg white in a medium bowl with mixer on high speed, until foamy.  Gradually beat in 3 tablespoons sugar until soft peaks form.  Set this aside.
  4. Bring the milk/tapioca/egg yolk/sugar mixture to a full boil on medium heat, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  Add the egg white mixture gradually, stirring until blended ( I like using a whisk).  Stir in vanilla.
  5. Cool 20 minutes, and then stir.  Serve warm or chilled.  Keep refrigerated.

I am sharing this with these lovely parties:


  1. Fluffy Tapioca Pudding sounds to me to be the most delicious comfort food. How gorgeous your beautifully set table is. The sweet bunny teacup and saucer is sweet and teams perfectly with the bunny teapot. Love the big bunny, too. So lovely that you have the embroidered cloth your mother lovingly stitched when you was a wee girl. As for the tea I would choose.....any of these brews would be a delight to sample. I have not tried any of these. Sitting by your cosy fire chatting with you, dear Kitty, would be a haven in these troubled times. Xx

  2. It's been a long time since I've had it, but yes, we all love tapioca pudding too Kitty! Take care and enjoy:@)

  3. I love tapioca! My grandparents really enjoy it, so we would have it at their house. The darling bunny teacup is so joyful! I used two cups and saucers for our coffee yesterday that I had not used in ages. Since I am staying home more, I get to enjoy my house more. xo

  4. I hate to admit this Kitty, but I've never had tapicoa pudding! But if you all love it it must be good! The bunny cup is adorable, and tea must come in every flavor imaginable! Your cabbage pot is adorable too! I rarely have tea, I need to get more civilized :)

  5. Hi Kitty,
    My mom used to make that pudding when we were all little. I would love to join you and virtual tea party. I will have a cup of jasmine tea and some of the pudding. The tea cut and saucer are adorable and same for the teapot. Stay safe and be well.
    Virtual hugs, Julie xo

  6. Hi Kitty, Can you believe I've never had tapioca pudding?! Enjoy your teacup and tea's a cold, rainy Monday and I'm enjoying a mug of tea right now too. I love your adorable bunny teapot. It's so pretty paired with your mom's beautiful embroidered tablecloth! Stay safe and cozy ♥

  7. I did try tapioca pudding once and did not care for it. Who taste buds have changed so I might like it now. LOL! But I do love your darling tea cup. Girl, look at your stash of teas. YUM! I love that vignette. That bunny is the cutest ever and that tea pot...I love it! I have a cabbage tea pot I actually put out on a table for Sunday dinner outside yesterday. Take care Kitty....Praying for us all. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  8. I LOVE your table setting, but that teapot really gets to me. Stay safe!

  9. Now Kitty I believe I can modify this for my Weight Watchers plan! I use a wonderful sugar substitute (Monk Fruit) that tastes, bakes and cooks just like sugar and has NO aftertaste. I just need to get the tapioca - I LOVE tapioca and haven't had it in a LONG time. I would love to enjoy a cup of Jasmine tea with you! Love that tablecloth your mom made - what a treasure! I found a pretty spring one at an estate sale before we were 'locked down' and I'm going to put it on my kitchen table. I put up my spring decorations over the weekend - I though we could use something cheerful!

  10. I've always loved tapioca pudding....such comfort food. I should learn to make it sugar free from scratch! I'll look for a recipe! Take care of yourself sweet lady and stay healthy and happy!

  11. Oh my! All I had to do was see the title of your post and immediately had the thought..COMFORT FOOD! 😁How I love all your teacup and teapot and decorations. Lovely post. My Beloved just LOVED tapioca pudding! 💙

  12. I do love tapioca pudding!Your table is adorable!What a precious embroidered cloth!I also love that gorgeous teapot and the sweet teacup!My pleasure stopping by!Hugs!

  13. One of my dad’s very favorite desserts, but one that I never enjoyed very’s my texture issues. 🙃 Your bunny tea cup set is adorable.

    1. One of my dad's favs too, Vee - and he loved rice pudding too - he was a huge pudding fan. ♥

  14. YUM! I haven't made tapioca pudding in forever! I think Vivi and I may need to make some!

    Your tea for one accountrements are so perfect. What a lovely and sweet tea you shared with us today, dear friend. Thank you. Big hugs.

  15. Oh, this made me think of my own dear Mom! She also dearly loved tapioca pudding, and I haven't had any since before she went to Heaven nearly 8 years ago. Thank you for bringing such sweet memories to my mind! God bless you. :)

  16. Kitty, I too love tapioca pudding and I have been eating it almost every day lately to get all my meds down. I usually make it from the directions on the box. But I have never separated the egg. You have served it so prettily in the stemware. Your new teacup is simply darling! Who wouldn't enjoy a cup of tea from that? And the teapot is a perfect companion to the teacup. Great assortment of tea too. I'll have the lemon ginger, please. Stay safe and well, my dear friend! Love and hugs, Sandi

  17. Kitty, oh I do love tapioca pudding! It has been ages since I've made it. My recipe is the same as yours. Love your pretty tea things. That poor rabbit looks like he is stuck in the cabbage teapot! How is your grandson in the military doing?? xoxo

  18. What an adorable tea time. I also like tapioca pudding, but have never tried to make my own.

    I have a bunny teapot from HomeSense. I'd love to add a bunny cup and saucer to my collection.

  19. This is such a darling tea table Kitty. I love the color of everything. Love the big bunny sitting on that gorgeous tablecloth. The teapot is so pretty and the teacup and saucer is just so sweet. I would prefer the lemon tea if you still have one. The pudding sounds delicious. Take care and be safe Kitty........

  20. Tapioca pudding has always been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl too. My mom made it two like the one you shared and also the large, whole, round beads that you have to cook, cook, COOK! My siblings and I called this "frog eye pudding" because well, the tapioca looked like big ol' frog eyes! LOL! Thanks for the invitation to your lovely virtual tea party, Kitty! HUGS!

  21. Kitty, your tapioca looks wonderful, and the presentation is so beautiful. I love tapioca and always think of my grandmother and my cousin Denise, both of whom I mentioned in my tapioca post some years ago. Now you've got me wondering if I have any tapioca in the cupboard!

  22. Hi Kitty, Tapioca is a favorite of mine, too, although my children never liked it, so it was only a treat for the Mr. and I. I haven't made it in ages, so thank you for sharing the recipe! Love your sweet tea-table with the wonderful, sentimental china and embroidered cloth. Such dear treasures! I am trying to keep busy during our stay-at-home time, organizing, cooking, and lots of cleaning. The weather has turned cold so we are inside and keeping a fire burning, too. You have a nice selection of tea to choose from and such a pretty presentation. Sending you hugs - take good care xo Karen

  23. Oh, I've never tasted it.

    Thank you for the tapioca pudding recipe from your mother ..., I will practice making it.

    Greetings from Indonesia

  24. Would you believe I've never had tapioca pudding? Not sure why, but probably because my mother never made it either. I love the stemmed dish from your grandmother! So pretty!
