“Wonderful for Christmas. Keep your eye on them for the last 15 minutes of baking. Some people enjoy this with a citrus glaze. Make sure the persimmons are ripe and soft! They ripen by exposure to light. I translated this recipe from French. From David Lebovitz. Makes 2 cakes. OK, I've revised the measurements- metric works much better and should ensure a moist cake.”
