I'd like to clarify a couple of things about this recipe. I submitted this particular recipe, and to Beth, who made a comment, you are correct if you are going by the picture. I don't know where this picture came from, but its NOT my pudding! The picture looks like a cake. I wrote a long time ago to the webmaster to delete the photo because it is misleading. My grandmother's father, whose last name was Mitchell, was born and raised in Mitchell, Indiana. This recipe came from his family. I hope to get my own pudding photo uploaded to replace the one there now. Thanks :) -Kerry

I am from Mitchell, Indiana, home of the Persimmon Festival, Persimmon Capitol of the World and all that. This is NOT how we make our persimmon pudding. This recipe is more of a persimmon cake. Not that it doesn't still taste good, its just not persimmon pudding!

I haven't tried this exact recipe but I know and eat Indiana persimmon pudding. Have made it and purchased it pre-made. Always DELICIOUS but it is an aquired taste. If you like sweet potato pudding you will probably like persimmon pudding. Serve with whipped topping!
