Vegan Persimmon Bread

Have you ever tried baking with persimmons? This Persimmon Bread is a really good place to start! It's seriously delicious!


– 3/4 C sugar – 3/4 C vegetable oil – 1 C unsweetened applesauce – 1 C persimmon puree – 1 ¾ C flour – ½ tsp baking powder – 1 tsp baking soda – 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg – 1/2 tsp ground cloves – 2 tsp ground cinnamon – 1/2 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, blend sugar and oil. Mix in the applesauce and persimmon puree. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, ground cloves, and cinnamon and mix until thoroughly combined.

Add to a bread loaf pan. Bake for one hour. Check doneness by inserting a fork into the center of the loaf — if it comes out clean, it’s finished.

Let it cool completely and enjoy.
