A recipe for making tapioca pudding. – 1 oz. of tapioca, 1 egg, 1/2 pint of cold milk, 1 gill of cold water, 1/4 oz. of butter, 1/2 oz. of moist sugar, cinnamon to taste. Put the tapioca into a basin, and cover it with water. Let it soak for 1 hour, until it has absorbed all the water. Add the milk and sugar. Bring to a boil, and simmer till quite soft and clear. Draw to the side of the fire, to cool it a little. Break the egg and beat it slightly; mix well with the tapioca; pour into a greased dish, and bake in a moderate oven until it is a golden colour. Serve either hot or cold.
