This is a really nice tasting cake when you can find a supply of persimmons in season.

Top Review by Happy Harry 2

Here I was checking my recipes for the persimmon loaves I made last year so I could make it today....and what a surprise to find that I had not rated it! It was such a hit last X-mas as I gave several loaves away. People have asked me if I would make some for them again,and of course, I said yes. The only thing I will alter this time is to cut the cherries to half a cup and dice them. Reason being that I thought they drew the taste buds away from the persimmons. Thank you, LoveToCook, for such a lovely addition to my collection of sweet loaves.
