Persimmon Mini Bundt Cakes

Persimmon Mini Bundt Cakes 1

For my brother's Christmas Eve goose dinner, I wanted to make something a little more festive than just Persimmon Muffins. So I baked the other half of the batter into mini bundt cakes. Dusted with powdered sugar for a wintery effect.

Why yes, this is the exact same recipe as the persimmon muffins. :P Search engine optimization, yo! Plus, quickie post!

adapted from my recipe for Persimmon Bread

for 2 dozen mini bundt cakes, you'll need:
3 very ripe hachiya persimmons or 6 very ripe fuyu persimmons
2 cups whole wheat or regular flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened at room temperature
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup yogurt
Powdered sugar for sprinkling on top.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Gently peel 3 very ripe hachiya persimmons. These are the pointy round kind. If you have the squat fuyu persimmons, you can use those too, but double up to 6 of them since they're smaller.

The persimmons can be a bit fibrous, so puree them a bit with the hand mixer.
