I had a huge bag of Fuyu persimmons from my inlaws tree so went looking for recipes. There aren't very many recipes for this type of persimmon. I made this as directed with cinnabon bread and added golden raisins. The recipe didn't say to peel the persimmons, and some people do eat the skin, so I didn't...I wish I did...the skin ended up giving the whole thing the texture of dried shredded coconut which I dislike. It didn't have much flavor and wasn't sweet enough. Sadly, we ended up throwing most of it out. If I were to make it again...I would try peeling and dicing the persimmons and adding extra brown sugar and spices.
Our neighbors gave us a bag of persimmons recently, so I was looking for ways to use them when I came across this recipe. This is very easy to put together. It's great served hot out of the crock pot with a big dollop of whipped cream on top. The persimmons make this dessert is very moist but not too sweet. We have a bakery in our area that has the best cinnamon-raisin-nut bread, and that is what I used as the base. Since the recipe doesn't specify when the butter should be added, I mixed it with the bread cubes and persimmon. Thanks, Lorie, for a new way to use up our persimmons.
