READY IN: 1hr 5mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Grease a 8" round cake pan.
  • In a large bowl, mix persimmon pulp, eggs, butter, buttermilk and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices.
  • Slowly fold the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  • Mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Add chopped nuts and stir to incorporate.
  • Pour into cake pan and bake for about 50 minutes.
  • When done, the center will still be very moist and soft (it may seem undercooked), but the outside of the cake should have formed a firm crust and be well-browned.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan for at least 20 minutes before serving.
  • Slice and serve warm.
