1/3 Photos of Fuyu Bundt Cake
1 hr 15 mins
The Fuyu is a non-astringent variety of persimmon (it won't dry out your mouth, I promise). They are flat not pointy. They are eaten while still firm like an apple (peeled or unpeeled). They are very sweet and creamy and slightly spicy. I love them! Most recipes made with them are salads, salsas and chutneys. This is one of the only baking recipes I've found. It is from an old Sunset magazine. It turned out wonderful! The clove taste is dominent but I liked it. It was good hot out of the oven but even better the next day. I'm going to try more baking with this type of persimmon in recipes that use apples. *Next time I make it, I think I'll try adding 1-2 tbsp of orange zest and perhaps an orange glaze. This should work in 2 loaf pans as well. *I've never had a problem with this recipe mixing the baking soda with the Fuyus, as it says, but if you're wary of the same thing happening to you that happened to Lalaloula, add the baking soda to the dry ingredients.
