4 oz. stick butter

2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 c. persimmon pulp (or pumpkin or sweet potato)

1 1/2 c. buttermilk
1 tsp. soda

1 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
tsp. salt
tsp. cinnamon

1/2 cup Milnot or Carnation canned milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Set oven to 325. Melt butter in 9 X 13 glass pan in the oven.

Beat sugar and eggs well and set aside. Mix persimmon pulp into egg mixture.

Stir soda and buttermilk in 2 cup measure. In another bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.

Mix buttermilk and persimmon mixture. Add dry ingredients gradually, beating on low speed. Pour butter from pan into the persimmon/flour mixture and blend. Mix in milk and vanilla.

Pour batter into buttered pan. Bake 55 minutes at 325. It rises, then falls and compacts. It's done when the edges brown a little and pull away from the pan slightly. Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

A prize winner in the Mitchell, IN Persimmon Festival, the best persimmon pudding ever, light and almost fluffy.
