When a group of ladies and I served this cake-like dessert for a church get-together, it was an instant hit. The persimmon flavor is subtle, and the butter sauce adds elegance.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Add egg; beat well. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; add to the creamed mixture alternately with milk. Stir in persimmon pulp.
  2. Pour into six well-greased 8-oz. custard cups or ramekins. Cover tightly with a double layer of foil. Place on a rack in a deep kettle. Add 1 in. of boiling water to kettle; cover and boil gently. Replace water as needed. Steam for 1-1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before removing from custard cups.
  3. For butter sauce, in a small saucepan, combine the sugar, evaporated milk, butter and salt. Cook and stir over medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until heated through. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Drizzle over pudding. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor’s Note: Use the Hachiya, acorn-shaped, variety persimmon that is ripe and soft. To scoop out Hachiya persimmons for mashing or pureeing, halve the fruit and scoop out the pulp with a spoon, discarding the stem, skin and seeds, if any.
