This tastes as great as it sounds, creamy and delicious. You can use any fruit you like in this but pineapple is my husbands favourite and it is a really great flavour combination.
- 5 cups hot water
- 3/4 cup raw sugar (or white)
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1 tblsp butter
- 1 cup tapioca
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups whipped cream
- 1 tin crushed pineapple
Place water in a saucepan with tapioca and cook until clear.
Add the butter and stir until melted.
Mix together the sugar, beaten eggs, brown sugar, cold water and vanilla, then add this mixture to the tapioca when it has cooled slightly (add it when it is hot and the egg will cook in it).
When cool add about 2 cups whipped cream and stir until combined then add crushed pineapple.
This is best if refrigerated before serving.
PS: I can never get the tapioca totally clear when it is cooked, it still has some whiteness to it and is still great.
