Homemade Persimmon Puddin'

My mami loves persimmon puddin'!  It was the highlight of the dessert table over Thanksgiving and Christmas...and it's something we've gone far too long without since her passing.  This year, we discovered persimmon trees at the back of the property and decided to give it a go...

  • 3 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 c sugar 
  • 1 c brown sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 c milk
  • 2 ½ c persimmon pulp
  • 6 Tbsp butter, melted

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, sugar, and brown sugar. 
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and milk together until smooth, and add the flour mixture and persimmon pulp.  Mix well.
  4. Stir in the melted butter. Put batter in prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the pudding comes out clean, about 1 hour. 
  6. Cool before serving.  Top with whipped cream, if desired.

Find fantastic old-fashioned recipes in the Homesteading Course at SchoolhouseTeachers!

This homeschool homesteading course is designed for anyone who has a desire to live more independently and prepare much of what is needed each day using their own hands. In this elective course, the student can learn how to work for what they want by making it themselves, instead of participating in an “on demand” society. Homeschool students of all ages learn patience, along with the skills needed to make their own cleaners for the home, sunscreen, homemade ketchup and dry mixes, as well as how to choose animals and prepare for emergencies, and much more. Learning the patience and usefulness of “doing it yourself” can be immensely helpful not only in the sense of living a healthier life, but also for the budget!
