A wonderful raisin bread.Not too sweet, the way I like it. Love the persimmon pulp in it, keeps the bread moist. A hit with the family. I used a half cup raisins instead,though. I will make this bread over and over again.


I've made this three times in my bread machine with super ripe persimmons I froze whole. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and it didn't turn out right. Much too dry. I made it again and kept adding water until the dough looked right. The third time I added the called for water and increased the amount of persimmon to 1 and 1/2 cup. The bread was really moist and fantastic.


I tried this recipe and with a few changes per another reviewer, and thought it was delicious. It was even much better the next morning toasted with a a light buttering. The changes I made were to increase the persimmon pulp to 1 1/2 cups and the water to 12 tbsp. I did not use a bread machine and divided the bread into 2 pieces and baked them in 3 1/2 x 6 inch pans at 350 for about 30 min. While eating the toasted bread, I thought that nuts would have been a great addition!
