Persimmon Pudding Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
I put up jams and jellies featuring persimmons, but also use that delectable fruit in desserts. I think you'll savor this moist cake with a bit of spice. It tastes great served with a dollop of whipped cream.—Ralph Wheat, Bedford, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 22, 2013

"I've made Plum Pudding over the holidays for years and everyone raves over it. This year, I had an over abundance of Persimmons and decided to try this recipe, for a change of pace. IT WAS HORRIBLE! The cake did not come out anything like my Plum Pudding cake! It was RAW AND GOOEY on the inside and nearly burnt on the outside. It left such a bad taste in everyone's palate, they made me throw the whole cake out, and refused to eat anything with persimmons in it this year."

"I really liked it, made it with some frozen persimmons I have been buying at a speciality foods store. Once you let them defrost, they really work well when you turn them into the pulp you need for this recipe."

"YUMMY!! Rich and heavy. You only need a small slice. Whipped cream is a nice addition. My first experience cooking with persimmons and I picked the right receipe to do it."
