How to make it
- Stir together sugar and melted butter. Re-sift flour with salt, cinnamon and nutmeg; add to butter mixture. Add persimmon pulp, soda, dissolved in warm water, 3 table spoons brandy and vanilla. Add eggs, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Add raisins and nuts, stirring just until mixed.
- Turn into buttered 5-6 cup steam-type mold. Cover and place on rack in steam kettle. ( I use a stock pot that will hold mold comfortably and allow for water to reach halfway). Pour in enough boiling water to reach halfway up sides of mold. Cover kettle or stock pot and let water gently simmer for 2 1/2 hours. Make sure that water is always simmering gently – you might have to add water during the 2 1/2 hours so the water level stays at halfway up the mold. DO NOT USE THE OVEN This is made on the stove – it is steamed, not baked. Let stand few minutes and then unmold onto serving dish. Pour about 1/4 cup of warmed brandy over pudding and flame. Serve with Brandy Whipped Cream Sauce. Makes 6-8 servings.
