DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl combine persimmon puree, sugar, egg and butter and beat until smooth (an electric mixer really helps!).
  • Sift flour, cinnamon and baking soda together and stir into persimmon mixture along with the milk and raisins alternately.
  • Turn batter into a well buttered 1 quart steamed pudding mold and cover tightly with a lid or heavy foil secured with kitchen string.
  • Place mold on a rack in a kettle with a tight fitting lid.
  • Pour boiling water into kettle to reach 2/3 of the way up the sides of the mold and steam pudding covered for 2 hours over medium heat.
  • Remove pudding to a rack and cool uncovered for 15 minutes.
  • Invert onto a serving plate and serve with vanilla sauce.
  • VANILLA SAUCE:
  • In a small saucepan combine sugar, cornstarch, nutmeg and salt.
  • Add water in a stream whisking constantly and then simmer sauce over low heat until thickened or just starts to come to a boil (about 3 minutes).
  • Off heat, whisk in butter, vanilla and zest.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl and serve with warm steamed pudding.
  • Makes 2 cups.
