Step 1

Combine sugar, tapioca and egg in saucepan. Stir and let stand 5 minutes. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.

Step 2

Cool 20 minutes (the pudding will thicken as it cools). Cover pudding with wax paper or plastic wrap touching the surface before refrigeration to prevent a skin from forming. Serve warm or refrigerate for several hours.

Step 3

Microwave Preparation: Prepare as above in a large microwavable bowl. Microwave on HIGH setting for 8-12 minutes (depends on your microwave), stirring occasionally until mixture comes to a full rolling boil.

One of my favorite desserts. This was excellent with a huge scoop of whipped cream. We love it that way!
