    minnie chef's Note:

    Wonderful for Christmas. Keep your eye on them for the last 15 minutes of baking. Some people enjoy this with a citrus glaze. Make sure the persimmons are ripe and soft! They ripen by exposure to light. I translated this recipe from French. From David Lebovitz. Makes 2 cakes. OK, I've revised the measurements- metric works much better and should ensure a moist cake.

      This cake tasted ok, but didn't stand out enough to displace our regular persimmon cake recipes. It was a little dry for my taste, although the glaze probably would have helped with that. Using toasted nuts was a nice flavor addition. This seems to be a recipe that is best if it sits for a day or tow to let the flavor develop. I used small (6") round cake plans, and got four cakes.
