Nate Makes Persimmon Bread!

I have a regular posting schedule of every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday, but going forward, in addition to those regular posts, I’d like to occasionally post short little snippets here and there. This is one of them.

With some of the persimmons Nate took home, he made a persimmon bread!

He got the recipe from the Proportional Plate blog. He made a couple of modifications: he used Fuyu instead of Hachiya persimmons, and he didn’t use as much sugar (1/2 c instead of 3/4 c). He said it turned out ok, but he should have given it more time in the oven. Also, even after cutting back on the sugar, it was still very sweet. If he makes it again, he’d try making it without any sugar at all. The decorative persimmons on top are a nice touch, though. If you cut them horizontally, the have a pretty star pattern.
