Persimmon Pudding


Persimmon pudding is a traditional American dessert made with persimmons. Although American, persimmon pudding is similar to traditional English dessert puddings, such as Christmas pudding or quince pudding.




1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2 cups persimmon pulp

2 1/2 cups white sugar

2 eggs, beaten

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 pinch salt

2 1/2 cups milk

4 tablespoons melted butter





Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Butter one 9×13 inch baking pan.

In a mixing bowl, combine persimmon pulp, baking soda, sugar and eggs. Mix well.

Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla, salt, milk and melted butter. Stir to combine.

Pour into baking pan and bake for 55 minutes. The pudding will rise but will fall when removed from oven.
