OK, persimmons. Before I came to Japan I hated persimmons. And I can explain why. In Russia we have persimmons in autumn for a short period of time, and oh god those persimmons are over-ripped, like glue, so impossible to eat, with seeds inside, and sticking to fingers and face. As a kid I was so not happy with this glue-like fruit.

You can imagine how skeptical I was when I first bought persimmon here in Japan. It didn’t look deadly ripped, no. Just perfect. No seeds. No glue inside. Not super sweet. Just perfect. Did I already write it? hehe

Japanese eat persimmons fresh mostly, and aside from jam and preserved ones I can’t remember much sweets with them.  This is why I HAD TO bake my own ones.

The idea came from banana oatmeal loaf I usually bake for breakfasts. Just switching banana puree in recipe was almost enough.

Words aside, let’s bake!

Persimmon Oatmeal Cake

20×20 cm form

  • 4 persimmons (making 2 cups of puree)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 cup oatmeal meal
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

How to

  1. Grease your baking form or place a cooking paper inside.#
  2. Peel persimmons and remove seeds if there are ones, chop them and puree with food processor etc.
  3. In a bowl whisk eggs with brown sugar, then add melted coconut oil and vanilla essence and whisk some more.
  4. Gradually (I do it in 3 times) add persimmon puree plus cinnamon and mix well until smooth.
  5. Add oatmeal meal, baking powder and salt. Mix one final time. If you decided to put walnuts, do it here.
  6. Transfer batter into baking form and bake at preheated to 180C oven for 50-55 minutes. Remove when done and let your cake cool down a bit before taking it out. Let it cool down completely on wire rack.
  7. Store wrapped in fridge.

Easy, right?

Persimmons give the cake totally different sweetness compared to banana one, and oh it is addictive one! I strongly recommend putting walnuts as well, because they give the cake another surprise twist.

Give it a go!
