Persimmon puree cake recipe

persimmon cake This is the first time I bought persimmons. First I thought they were tomatoes. But what were they doing in the exotic fruits section?I liked its deep orange colour and wanted to taste them. Then I googled to find about this fruit and came to know lot about them. And they could be eaten in raw or cooked form too. They are used in pies ,cakes, puddings etc. So I baked a cake with this fruit. And it tasted so good. Here's the recipe for it.
