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.

Ingredients
All purpose flour- 1 cup siftedpersimmon cake
Baking powder- 1tsp
Baking soda- a pinch
Butter- 3 tbsp
Fine sugar- 1 1/2 cup
Egg- 3
Cinnamon powder- 1tsp
All spice powder- 1tsp
Vanilla essence- few drops
Persimmon fruit - 1 pureed

Method-
Mix sugar and softened butter well till it is creamy. Add eggs one by one and beat thoroughly. Next fold in the flour slowly and mix well. Then add the essence, cinnamon powder and all spice. Then stir in the pureed fruit and mix well. Pour the batter in a loaf pan . Preheat oven at 180c and bake for about 35 minutes and till the knife comes out clean.persimmon cake
