  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8-inch baking dish or cake pan.
  2. Whirl the pulp in a blender until smooth. Blend together the persimmon pulp and baking soda in a small bowl.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the puree to the creamed mixture. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves; gradually blend the flour mixture into the persimmon mixture. Stir in nuts and citrus zests; batter will be stiff. Spoon into prepared cake pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool the cake in the pan for 10 minutes, and turn out on a rack to continue cooling an additional 20 or 30 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and serve warm.

I made this tonight and it was a big hit. Makes a lovely, spicey sweet cake which is a perfect treat around the holidays. I made a few modifications. First - I doubled the amount of persimmons...

It tastes pretty good, but not that much like persimmon. I'll try tweaking it a bit next time to see if I can't get more of a persimmon flavor. Overall, it's a good way to get rid of a fair a...

This was delish. The spice mixture was spot on and the aroma was wonderful.

You can't taste the persimmons, but this cake is yummy! It was a great way to use up all those persimmons getting ripe on me. I followed the recipe as close as I could, except I left out the l...
