Sweet Persimmon Bread

Ingredients for 12 portions

  1. 0.5 cup of melted butter
  2. 2 cups of sugar
  3. 1 egg
  4. 2 cup of flour
  5. 1 cup of raisins
  6. 1 cup of Brazil nut
  7. 2 ripe persimmons
  8. 1 pinch of cinnamon
  9. 1 pinch of ground cloves
  10. 1 pinch of salt


  1. Slightly melt butter at room temperature for several hours.
  2. Wash raisins and sort carefully.
  3. Clean nuts and chop coarsely.
  4. Wash persimmons, cut into two halves, and pull out the pits. Use a teaspoon to remove the flesh and mash it with a fork.
  5. Turn on the oven and heat it to 180 °C. Take a narrow and deep rectangular baking pan and butter it carefully. Blend butter, sugar and egg in a bowl. Then add all the remaining ingredients except for the persimmon puree.
  6. Afterwards, whisk the persimmon puree into the mixture. Pour the batter onto the buttered baking pan and bake for about 40 minutes in the preheated oven until the golden-yellow crust.
  7. Take the baked bread from the oven and let it cool down for 10 minutes on the pan. Then put the bread on a cutting board to be cooled down completely. Cut the cooled bread into slices, put on a wide shallow dish and serve with homemade tea.
