Straw's' StoryThis is not I recipe...there was a Fifty State Cookoff (recipes from all 50 states).
This is a real recipe of AR Persimmon Pudding; one thing our State is supposedly known for.
AND NO, I have not made this recipe....you can't find any persimmons around where I live.
We also have
"Hillary's Chocolate Chip Cookies"
and "Arkansas Sin"
YES..these 3 are recipes too.
Guess I should post them also.
I have already shared them with a group I joined called USA State Recipes.
P.S. This is also NOT my photo, it goes with the winning recipe.
1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 1/2 c
persimmon pulp (be sure they are ripe and not green or you'll be sorry)
1Cream butter until light and fluffy.
Gradually beat in brown sugar.
Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each egg.
Sift flour with baking powder. Add flour alternately with milk, beginning ending with flour. Fold in persimmon pulp and the spices.
Pour mixture into a greased 1 1/2 quart pudding mold. Steam for 1 1/2 hours.
