      This was my first-ever cooking experience with persimmons...a positive one, I'm glad to add! Delicious cake. Other reviews were correct - the persimmon flavor isn't strong, but then persimmons don't HAVE a strong flavor! Nice, moist cake perfect for the harvest season. I took one reviewers suggestion to drizzle it with a glaze made of lemon juice, powdered sugar (and I added the lemon zest too)! Very nice recipe! Showy too! Thanks.

      This was a nice way to use up a few persimmons from my grandmother's persimmon tree. I used raisins as I did not have currants. Next time I think I will dredge them in flour first because many of them sunk to the bottom of the pan and caused it to stick. I used a 10 cup intricate bundt pan and I think that played a part in it sticking as well. It was delicious with a nice texture and I will definately make it again!

      Instead of pressing pulp through a strainer, I just peeled it and pulsed the pulp in my food processor. I noticed the same phenomenon as Chicagopm--the persimmon pulp kind of jelled when it sat with the baking soda mixed in. But no worries, it mixed in easily. I agree--it could have been cooked in a smaller pan as the cake only ended up being about 3 inches high--not even to the top of the bundt pan.
