Persimmon Spice Cake

Persimmon fruit is new to me. I was not sure of using this fruit in cake but for AFAM event I tried this fruit & I am glad I tried Persimmon. We all loved this cake. I adapted this recipe from Here

  • All Purpose Flour: 1 & 3/4 Cup
  • Persimmon Pulp: 1 & 1/4 Cup
  • Butter: 1/2 Cup
  • White Sugar: 3/4 Cup
  • Baking Soda: 1 tsp
  • Egg: 1
  • Salt: 1/2 tsp
  • Chopped Almonds, Cashews: 1/2 Cup
  • Raisins: 1/2 Cup
  • Cinnamon Powder: 1tsp
  • Nutmeg and Cloves Powder: 1 tsp
  • Orange and Lemon Zest: 1 tsp

  1. Mix well persimmon pulp and baking soda. It will set after some time.
  2. Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and persimmon mixture. Combine flour and spices and add to persimmon mixture.
  3. Blend well, stir in nuts and zest. Spoon into a 9 inch greased cake pan. Bake at 350 for about 40 or more until knife comes out clean.
  4. Before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar or whipped cream or vanilla ice-cream.

This is my entry for AFAM: Persimmon event.
