DIRECTIONS

  • Place tapioca in a medium mixing bowl along with the water, cover, and let stand overnight.
  • Drain water from tapioca.

  • Cook on high for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolk and sugar.

  • Transfer the pudding to a bowl and cover the surface with plastic wrap.
