Adapted from FatFree Vegan Kichen
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Serves: 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups Fuyu persimmons, cubbed
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar 
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg 
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup raisins

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Oil or spray a bundt pan.
In a small bowl, mix the persimmon, lemon juice, coconut oil or apple sauce, and agave nectar. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients, except for raisins. Pour the wet into the dry and mix just until all flour is moistened (do not over-mix). Fold in the raisins.



Pour into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40-45 minutes, if you using a pan for one bundt cake. (My bundt pan with 6 small bundt cakes took 30 minutes.) Allow to cool for 10 minutes and then remove from the pan. Cool completely before serving.

Note: Low-fat quickbreads like this really benefit from being allowed to cool completely, which is why they often taste better the next day.

That looks delicious! I had no idea that low fat quick breads were better when they sat a bit. Thanks for the tip! As always - your photos are stunning!

They look amazing! I haven't had a lot of experience with persimmons, I am curious to see how they taste in baked goodies...

My experience with persimmons is mixed - I love the flavor but hate the texture after. I'd be interested to try them in baked goods.
very cute little bundt cakes!

I've been wanting to try persimmon for a long time now and this is definitely making me want to try some even more! They are so cute :) But most importantly they look sooo delicious! I love the mini bundt pans, I've got to get me some. Great recipe, I love your presentation!

I love persimmons! My dad even went out and bought a small persimmon tree 2 years ago which hasn't produced any fruit yet but that doesn't stop us from buying them!
Until recently, I never knew you could or would bake with a persimmon fruit!
