    What's Cooking?'s Note:

    This is a very moist gluten-free cake, rich and luxurious tasting. I make this with my "I Can't Believe It's Not Gluten! Gluten-Free Cake Flour Mix" (I Can't Believe It's Not Gluten! Gluten-Free Cake Flour Mix) but you can use most premixed gluten-free flours as long as they contain xanthan or guar gum. Use extremely ripe Hachiya persimmons (not Fuyu). They should be so mushy that they nearly fall apart in your hands.

      This is unbelievably delicious! One doesn't have to NEED a gluten free diet to appreciate this dessert! I used my favorite gluten free flour mix (Gluten Free All Purpose Flour). I couldn't find coconut flour so substituted toasted shredded coconut. The flavor is reminiscent of pumpkin pie, but not so similar that you might as well be eating pumpkin pie! Moist with a complex blend of flavors...just excellent!
