I’ve been very lucky to have been given several bags of free persimmons this year. Depending on where you live they can be kinda pricey, but if you have never tried one it’s well worth the investment. I personally like to eat Fuyu raw and bake with Hachiya. That’s the kind I used for this recipe.

To puree the persimmon, I just threw it in my tiny two-cup food processor, but if you don’t have one a blender will do just fine.

This is a good article about the different types of persimmons (click on the photo):

    I just veganized a persimmon cookie recipe that I had. It had the same spices and a cup of the persimmon puree. The cookies are iced with a caramel frosting (vegan) and the cookies are pretty yummy.

    Looks great! Is there a way to replace apple sauce? I live in China and can’t find any here. Thanks a lot in advance!

      If you have apples, peel and cook them. Then mash and cool. Should be close enough to applesauce.

    I wasn’t able to find any persimmons and decided to make a banana bread with this recipe. It was sooo good that this is now the second time I’m making it!
