Fuyu Persimmon Cake

Most of the persimmon recipes I’ve found involve using persimmon pulp.  On the Food Librarian site, I found a recipe for Fuyu persimmon bundt cake, which calls for the use of hard persimmons.

The recipe calls for three cups of persimmons, so if you have a lot of fuyu persimmons, this is a great way to use some up.  The taste had a bit too much spice for my personal taste, but other people really enjoyed the cake.
