I made this bread according to the directions, adding about 3/4 cup of chopped nuts as well. The result tastes good, but be warned that it is VERY dense and heavy. More so than a normal banana bread or pumpkin bread. I was thinking of giving these for gifts, but I have to say that I don't think they're good enough for that. Time to try a different recipe!

Perfect for the holidays. Found it quick and easy, but most important, enjoyed by the whole family.

Thank you for sharing this recipe. We had some persimmons that our grands had picked from a friend's tree and had no idea how to use them. The recipe you shared with us turned out great...we added a banana since we were just shy of the 2 cup suggested amount of persimmon. Everyone loved the results.

Persimmons on their own didn't have much flavor but the bread was moist, hearty and yummy! I loved it.

I used this recipe to use up pulp I had left over from making fresh juices. I had been looking for a good recipe to use it up and this one called for quite a bit of pulp. The pulp I had used consisted of apple, beet, celery, and lots of carrot. It worked great! it was a little heavy on the all spice for me - but it is still really delicious. half went into a loaf, the other half went into muffins which I baked for around 30 min. The taste great!

This bread is delicious. I used 1 1/2 c. sugar, 3 tsp. Garam Masala Indian spices blend (instead of the other spices), 1 c. persimmon and 1 c. banana, and added walnuts. Wonderful and unusual. Great with Tetley Cardamom Tea.

Super moist and fluffy. I added ripe banana mash instead of applesauce and chia seeds just for fun. The spices really make the bread flavorful and unique. This would be perfect for Thanksgiving brunch.
