DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325°F for glass pans, or 350°F for metal pans.
  • Grease and flour two 9"x13" pans.
  • Cream the sugar and butter together.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, until thoroughly incorporated.
  • Add the persimmon pulp and the buttermilk to the mixture.
  • Dissolve the baking soda in a little bit of warm water, let fizz, and then add to the mixture.
  • Mix the baking powder with one (1) cup of flour and add to mixture.
  • Add the second cup of flour a little bit at a time, but do not overbeat as this will make the pudding tough.
  • Divide the batter into two pans (this will produce a rather thin layer of pudding when baked).
  • Bake for 45 to 60 minutes checking for doneness by inserting a toothpick in the center after 45 minutes.
  • Do NOT overbake!
  • Better the pudding be a little on the moist side than dry.
  • For the sauce, place the first 4 ingredients in saucepan, bring to boil, boil 5 minutes, then remove from heat and add the vanilla.
  • Once the pudding is done and has cooled a little, cut it into 3” squares and layer it in a serving dish with the warm sauce between the layers and ending with sauce spooned over the top.
