  1. Directions Grease and flour two 9'' loaf pans. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine the flour, salt, baking soda, ground nutmeg and sugar in a large bowl and sift. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and then stir in the butter, liquor, persimmon puree, very gradually drizzle this liquid mixture into the powders and keep stirring while doing so. Lastly, toss in the nuts and raisins. Pour into prepared loaf pans, and bake for an hour. Insert a toothpick into the center to check. If it comes out clean, your persimmon bread is ready. You can increase the sugar quantity for a moister and sweeter bread. You can store it for a week at room temperature, but make sure it is well wrapped. Best Persimmon Bread Recipe (so they say!) Ingredients ⅓ cup brown sugar Butter to grease loaf pan 1 cup all-purpose flour ⅓ cup chopped pecans ¼ cup plain yogurt ¼ cup seedless raisins 1 to 2 large very ripe Hachiya persimmons, about 1 cup pulp 1 tsp baking powder 1 egg, beaten ¼ tsp allspice ½ tsp ground cinnamon ¼ tsp ground ginger ½ tsp freshly grated nutmeg Directions Heat the oven to 375°F. Peel persimmons, and them blend them into a pulp. Combine together brown sugar and yogurt in a medium bowl. Add in the persimmon pulp and whisked eggs. Blend ingredients until fluffy using an electric mixer. Combine the flour, spices and baking powder in a large bowl, and sift twice. Add the pulp mixture to the dry ingredients and whisk just until blended. Lastly toss in the raisins and nuts. Transfer the batter into a greased and floured 8''x5'' loaf pan. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. When done, take it out of the oven and wait 5 minutes before slicing.
