Submitted by: brookdale on March 25, 2011

Another of my Grammy’s recipes from the 1920’s. I love this!

Servings: 4   Prep Time: About 10 min.   Cook Time: About 5 min.  


2 c milk
3 Tbsp quick-cooking tapioca
1 egg
1/3 c sugar
Dash salt
1 tsp vanilla


Stir milk and tapioca together in top of double boiler.

Put over boiling water and let it come to a boil (tapioca comes to top and looks transparent).
Meanwhile, beat egg; stir in sugar.

Put a couple spoonfuls of hot milk mixture slowly into egg and stir.

Stir egg very slowly into hot milk mixture and stir till thick. Add vanilla.

Serve warm with cream.
