​Tipsy Persimmon Bread Recipe: A Deliciously Different Fall Bread Recipe

Persimmons are a stunning deep orange fruit available in the fall when your neighbor’s decorative tree explodes with the fruit. There are two types of persimmons: the Japanese Hachiya, which is large and round with an elongated tip. The Fuyu is smaller and can look like a tomato. The Hachiya is soft to the touch when ripe and the flesh is smooth and creamy with a tangy-sweet flavor. If not completely ripe, the flesh is very astringent and mouth puckering. The Fuyu, on the other hand, is firm even when ripe and the flesh is sweet and not at all astringent. 

Persimmons contain a good amount of vitamins A and C. Pecans have a higher number of strong antioxidants, more fiber, and more monounsaturated fat versus polyunsaturated fat. They are also higher in vitamin E. On the other hand, walnuts are the best go-to nut for omega-3 fatty acids, iron and vitamin B. Walnuts also have more protein and polyunsaturated fat.

The addition of bourbon or Cognac contributes to the tipsy state of this bread. Serve this persimmon bread recipe as a snack, for dessert or give them as gifts.

  • You don't have to buy an expensive bourbon or Cognac for this recipe.
  • To speed up getting your eggs to room temperature, place them in a bowl of warm water.

Here's how to make it:

  2. Sift the flour, sea salt, baking soda, nutmeg, cardamom and sugar in a large mixing bowl. 
  3. Make a well in the center then stir in the butter, eggs, liquor, persimmon puree, then the nuts and raisins.
  4. Pour the batter into the baking pans. Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
