Thank you for sharing your recipe! I'm sure DG readers and my family, especially my mom, will just looooooove it!!! I usually bake and have been so busy lately everyone has been deprived of goodies. I'll have to treat everyone to Persimmon Bundt Cake ^_^
Thanks for article, Wind. And thanks for a recipe, Maggiemudpie. Who knows? Maybe I'll make it on Thanksgiving.:))
A persimmon is my favorite fruit. It grows in my backyard and if happened I can make it before wild birds do, I can also enjoy some. It is Fuyu, non-astringent one, and yes,it might be eaten as an apple but also, when the fruit is more ripe, you can eat it as a delicious dessert using a spoon, since persimmon becomes a pulp. I prefer Fuyu over Hachija for never being astringent and for lack of stone.
Sometimes, when birds have a mercy on me and leave me some extra fruits, I would like to bake a pie, but first I'd be sure about amount of sugar in Maggiemudpie's recipe.Should I use 3 cups of sugar or it's a mistake?
I'm not very good with baking for me it seems like a lot.
I'd be very thankful for your answer, Maggiemudpie. Thank you in advance.
Wow, you're so lucky to have your own persimmon tree in your backyard!! Great tip on eating with a spoon when real soft. Thanks for sharing your great photos too! I hope Maggiemudpie responds to your sugar question as well. For me, I always try and use recipes with the least sugar and fat when possible. And, just fyi, there is a link at the bottom of my article to another persimmon bundt cake recipe that you may also want to check out if you haven't already.
yes the sugar measurement is correct.It is a moist and very delicious cake or some call it bread.Also just as good using pumpkin or zucchini.Also freezes well.I make loaf size breads and freeze but they dont last long.Would love to hear if anyone likes the recipe.
Thank you very much for answers. And for additional recipes.
Sometimes, during fall I use persimmons in my daily lunch salad [lettuce, tomato, avocado, some nuts or seeds, persimmon (or any other fruit), feta cheese, olive, balsamic]. Tasty and, what is more important, healthy and nutritious.
I also try to avoid excessive sugar and fat intake - I'm enough sweet and fat myself;))) - but from time to time I can forget some rules.;)))
Of course, I will let you know.
