by Karen Larard

There are no gluten in tapioca and this version is made with water so no lactose.


  • 1.80 Ounces Tapioca
  • 3.50 Ounces Sugar
  • 4 Cups Water
  • 1 Lemon
  • 4 Egg yolks
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    One winter when I was a small child, I had spend hours playing the snow with my mother and my siblings. When we came home my father had made this treat for us. Se tab for measurement ⬇

    Step 2

    Bring the water to the boil. Add the zest of a lemon.

    Step 3

    Add the tapioca and boil it for 15-20 minutes until the tapioca turns translucent. Stir occasionally.

    Step 4

    Whisk the egg yolks with the sugar. Add the juice of a lemon. Use the leftover egg whits to make merengue.

    Step 5

    To the left you can see the tapioca after 5 minutes of boiling. On the right the tapioca have been boiled for 17 minutes and are now done.

    Step 6

    Turn off the heat and add half of the egg whisk to the tapioca while you are whisking.

    Step 7

    Add the tapioca/egg whisk mix to the rest of the egg/sugar whisk while whisking. A lot of whisking going on 😄

    Step 8

    All done. You can serve it warm as it is or add a spoonful or two of rum or serve it cold.

    Step 9

    The tapioca comes from the cassava root. The plant is also known as manioc.
