  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch cake pan.
  2. Whisk together the flour baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a bowl, set aside. Whisk together the eggs, persimmon pulp, milk, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl until smooth. Fold the persimmon mixture into the flour mixture until no dry lumps remain. Pour into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan, and allow to cool completely on a wire rack before icing.

Not sure what a 9x13 loaf pan is. I used the largest loaf pan I know of (9x5) and the cake did not cook in the middle after 1 hour and 45 minutes. We cut off the cooked ends and ate that - it ...

I made this with some modifications, since I didn't have a 9x13 loaf pan (had that size in a cake pan, but not loaf): used a bundt cake pan and baked for 40-45 mins at 375. Turned out moist, b...

I was expecting something a bit more like a spiced and dry christmas cake but this came out really nice and moist (hate this word, but its the right word). Made this recipe as is, but instead o...

I will certainly make this cake again. In the recipe I used 1/2 tsp. cinniamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/8 tsp. cloves, I also added 1 cup walnuts, 1 cup raisins and believe me it was extra deliciou...

This is a great persimmon cake. I followed the recipe, but made a couple of changes. I added 1 cup of pecans, 1 tsp. cinnamon, used only 1 tsp. vanilla, and substituted 1 cup of Splenda for on...

I added a little oil to my milk because I was using 1% milk. Don't think I needed to do that. I baked it in a bundt pan at 325 for 55 minutes. Cake is very moist and very good with the cream c...

I really liked the cake. The persimmon cake had good flavor. The only thing I did differently was I used self-rising four and left out the baking power and used a mixer instead of whipping it by...

this persimmon cake recipe cooks very well in an 8x8 baking dish for 50 minutes at 300 degrees. In contrast, the instructions for this recipe, as of November 2011, call for 1 hour & 15 minutes c...

I had some persimmons and no idea what to do with them and I came across this recipe. I am so glad I tried it. It's fantastic! The exterior of the cake is a little thick but not tough and dry...
