Persimmon Bread

Melissa Baldan


My neighbor brought me a huge bag of these yummy fruits. But, I had no idea what to do with them. Well, bread seems like a good idea. Turns out, I was right!
This is the most moist fruit bread I have ever made. Delicious and sweet. A family treat for every fall from here to eternity!
