Persimmon Pudding

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Stargazerlilly

I have made this several times with the intention of taking a photo to add with my recipe but it doesn't last long enough around my house to get a picture! In Indiana the beginning of autumn and the holiday season are marked by the appearance of persimmon pudding! New comers to the area are often thrown off by this dish but one piece of this delicious dessert and they are hooked for life!

Pretty good! I halfed the recipe, added currants soaked in brandy, ground ginger, nutmeg and cloves to this recipe. I baked this covered. Served it warm with whipped cream. Great use for an overproductive crop!
