Persimmon Pudding Recipe


My mother-in-law tried many a persimmon pudding recipe until she settled on this one. It has a rich and buttery taste and a smooth texture. My kids always want the edge pieces (extra buttery and crisp).

2 eggs, beaten

1 3/4 cups sifted flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 cup half-and-half

1 cup buttermilk

1 tsp. soda

1/3 cup melted butter

dash of cinnamon


Combine persimmon pulp, sugar, and eggs. Sift flour with baking powder; add to persimmon mixture alternating with a combination of the ream, butter milk and soda. Melt butter in baking pan and coat pan with the butter. Stir the remaining butter into the persimmon mixture. Bake at 325 for 60 minutes in a 13 x 9 pan.
