I tried this twice, with very poor results - didn't rise, too sweet, too wet. I wish I knew what happened. My baking powder is not old. Immediately after this I baked banana bread, which turned out fine, so it's not the oven temperature. I used Japanese persimmons, which I pureed in the blender. I did substitute plain yogurt for the sour cream, but this is something that I often do, without adverse results. If I had made no substitutions, I would give this 1 star. However, because of the substitution, I'm not assigning any stars. I would really like to make a persimmon cake, so if the recipe poster or anyone else can guess where I went wrong, I'd be glad to hear.
