Num Taloak (Persimmon Coffee Cake) (Cambodia)

Recipe by GiddyUpGo
READY IN: 35mins
SERVES: 12-18




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Then oil a cake pan (I used butter) and sprinkle a little bit of flour on the bottom.
  • Mix the eggs with the sugar and melted butter. Keep mixing until creamy.
  • Add the salt, baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla extract and flour. Finally add the persimmon. When it is mixed well, add the walnuts.
  • Transfer the mixture to your prepared cake pan and back for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool, then sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  • Note: I had to bake mine a whole lot longer than 25 minutes (it was probably more like an hour). My cake came out very wet in texture. I don't know what the texture is supposed to be like so I can't say whether or not I got it right.
