This is probably a very good recipe, but I made a grave tactical error: Do NOT put this in a loaf pan. I wanted to give this as a gift, and a 9x13 pan just isn't a size appropriate for gift giving. I used a regular-sized loaf pan. I also added 1/4 c. of golden raisins because persimmon pud just isn't right without them. What a mistake!!! I baked it more than twice the directions at a slightly higher temp, and it never set in the center, when i turned it out, I got a lumpy, goopy glob. The crust was delicious, but this recipe isn't something that can be converted without adding extra eggs and more flour to bind it. I'd try it again, but not for gifts, and certainly never in a loaf pan.



Rich, dense, spicy/sweet, moist - mixed up and in the oven in probably under 5 minutes. This could not have been simpler. I have never eaten anything with persimmons before, but I am a confirmed fan now! And my house smelled oh-so-yummy.



When I said I was bringing persimmon pudding to Thanksgiving dinner, everyone was very skeptical. However, after trying this dish, everyone was a fan. The only recommendation I would make would be to use a smaller pan because my pudding ended up very thin. Perhaps with a smaller pan the slices would be thicker.
