I ended up with two large bags of persimmons so I tried five different persimmon bread/pudding recipes from this site and this recipe was the winner (to be served Christmas Eve)! First, I followed this recipe exactly and it turned out great. The second time I made it, I added one TB of soy milk, substitued 1/8 cup of wheat germ for i/8 cup of the flour, and added two TBS of brandy. This also turned out great. I baked it in a buttered and floured pie dish, then unmolded it and dusted it with powdered sugar. On Christmas Eve, I'll serve it with brandied whipped cream on the side.

This was absolutely delicious. Probably the best pudding I have ever made! It got rave reviews from everyone in my family. It was moist, light, a little chewy on the edges, not too sweet yet flavoursome. Perfection!
