Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Reminiscent of apricots and honey, persimmons make a lovely bread when gently spiced with cinnamon, and augmented with raisins and chopped walnuts.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Oil a 9 x 4 inch pan.
  • In a small bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, salt, nuts, and raisins.
  • In a large bowl, blend eggs, sugar, and oil. Mix baking soda into pulp, and add to sugar mixture. Fold in flour mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake for 75 minutes, or until tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
