"My husband's grandmother, Nonnie, used to make her really unique version of Persimmon Pudding every Thanksgiving. When she wasn't able to make it anymore, my husband asked if I would take over. I did, and am now required to bring this to every fall family gathering! You can serve this warm or let it cool - my family loves it both ways."

I love persimmon pudding and have been eating it since I was a little shaver. Whether that makes me a conisuer or not I don't know but this is the best I have ever made. Also took some to where I bank and the girls there said it was the best they had ever had. Only thing I might change is mixing half the sauce-I think that would be perfect.
This pudding is dense and sweet, and the persimmons provide more of a light floral perfume than a distinct flavor. We really enjoyed it. This was the first taste of persimmons for most of us.
Wonderful! Every Holiday we try at least 1 new recipe. This was by far the biggest hit! When my store got in Persimmons, everyone ask me what they were used for. Of course I searched allrecipes and found this one to be most interesting. It really show cased the flavor of persimmons. The texture was perfect, the flavors unique. So easy to make. Not sure about the sauce. I used Wondra rather than all purpose flour and it turned out gel-like. (cooked too long?) We liked it anyway. Nonnie's Persimmon Pudding will be on our menu from now on. Thank you so much!
I will make this recipe again. It was easy to make and a great way to use the Hachiya persimmons we had that were getting mushy.
This is the very same recipe my grandmother from Mitchell used each year w/o buttermilk- whole milk will work.
I used sweetened condensed milk instead of heavy cream cause I didn't have any. And while cutting the recipe in half I forgot to cut the amount of sweetened milk in half. OOPS... While the pudding came out good, it came out very sweet. The topping was good, but even I'd followed the recipe exactly, I think I'd cut the topping in half.
This was a first for our family as we had never seen nor tasted a persimmon! The recipe turned out well, but is too sweet for our taste. I will serve it with a choice of toppings: real whipping cream or lemon curd.
It was wonderful, just the way it is, I wouldn't change anything.
