    2Bleu's Note:

    This is an English pudding (or cake). A persimmon is a fruit with red-orange skin and flesh which comes in several varities and are in season from October to around Dec or Feb depending on your location. When selecting persimmons, look for plump, soft fruit but not mushy. Some helpful notes from our Zaar friend Maito, (who so kindly volunteered to be the test kitchen for this recipe that I found scratched down on paper from long ago and had not made personally) are as follows: Either of the two varieties of persimmons will work with this, as long as the fuyus are soft or hachiyas are super soft/almost mushy. Put greased parchment paper (greased side down) under the foil (so aluminum doesn’t drip into your cake). It is also helpful to have a string to make a handle to help you lift the cake out (we did a crisscross around the whole pan). Before step 3, you might measure the amount of water you want first (with the pans and pot in place), before putting the batter in.

      I would probably rate this 3.5 stars. It was a good moist sort of quick bread kind of cake, reminiscent of gingerbread. It is interesting that it tastes like molasses, even though it doesn't contain any. You also can't really detect the persimmon, it melts into the overall flavor. We liked that it was not overly sweet. I am not a big salt person, but I do think the cake could use a little salt, maybe 1/2 tsp? The sauce is a must though! I made half the sauce recipe, and it still made a ton. I used Meyer lemon zest in it, and did halve the butter in the sauce as well. The leftover sauce was great with berries (and I could see other applications too). Since I didn't have a pudding mold, I used a bundt pan atop a pressure cooker rack inside a huge pot. I was aiming for the water to come half way up the side of the bundt pan, but it did actually float at first. Since I have never made anything with this type of preparation, I was checking on it frequently to make sure it was still simmering, there was enough water, etc., so found that it did later sink. Thanks for the recipe, Bird!
