Handed down from my great great grandmother who received it from her mother. She passed away at 92 years old, but not before giving me her best and oldest recipes. I hope you enjoy!

  • Beat persimmon pulp and sugar together in a bowl; beat in eggs. Beat in buttermilk and baking soda.

  • Sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl. Gradually add flour mixture to persimmon mixture, stirring until well incorporated; stir in vanilla extract. Pour persimmon batter into prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden and cooked through, about 1 hour.

Cook's Note:

Make sure the persimmon is not hard; the pulp has to be sweet to taste for it to be sweet in the pudding pie. Enjoy my great great grandmothers recipe!

This recipe is excellent. I used very ripe Fuyu persimmons. I didn't have buttermilk so I looked up the substitution and it is yogurt in the same amount. This doesn't give the pan size and it should be a large pie dish Read More

i made it exactly as directed. Was very good. Very much a bread pudding consistency in that it looks like cake from the top but is very moist in the middle. Whole family enjoyed it and the kids had never tasted persimmons before. As Carol C suggested this was made in a deep dish pie plate Read More

The recipe also yields 2 pies ( 9" inch regular). I baked it for 50 minutes. I plan to eat one now and freeze the other. Read More

This dessert is SO Good!! I followed recipe except I used 1-1/2 cups of flour because it s the consistency we are used to here in Indiana. I had lost my original recipe and this one is close. I did add a dash of nutmeg also. Thanks for posting! Read More

My son gathers and purées the persimmons in the fall when they start to drop. Puts up many quarts in the freezer. He uses this recipe and man it doesn t last long.... Who knew an overly mature fruit from trees in our woods would make such a tasty dish! I recommend using this recipe for your wild persimmons. Read More
