  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease three 6x3 inch loaf pans.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the persimmon pulp and baking soda. Let stand 5 minutes to thicken the pulp.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, oil, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Blend until smooth. Mix in persimmon pulp and water alternately with flour. Fold in nuts. Divide batter into the prepared pans, filling each pan 2/3 full.
  4. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

THe taste is good, very similar to pumpkin bread. The problem is that its very stick and difficult to remove from pan. I'm thinking to try without adding additional water as the persimmons alrea...

Everyone loves it, just as long as you don't admit persimmons are in it. I wish it used more persimmons so I could use up our harvest quicker!

This bread is so moist and flavorful! My husband and I can't stop eating it. I baked some of the batter in mini muffin tins and it worked great - easy to pop in your mouth!

Made this recipe many times. Tweak the ingredients - reduced sugar to 2 C brn sugar, increase persimmon to 1 1/2 cup & eliminated the water, added spices suggested by other reviewers i.e., 1/4...
