Spiced persimmon tea cake

Hello from deep drifts of snow! We’re pretty much snowed in today, which is so cozy and nice. The fire is crackling, tea is brewing, books are being read, keyboards are clicking away, Madeline Peyroux is singing softly on the stereo. Winter so novel!

I have a little guest post up on The Kitchn right now that I thought some of you might be interested in: Spiced Persimmon Tea Cake. Yum.

Thanks for having me, Faith!

    That looks amazing. I have wanted to buy some persimmons, but was at a bit of a loss for what to do with them beyond gaze at their loveliness,

    Ooooh! I wish I had seen this when I still had a tree full of persimmons. I, too, was at a loss besides salad and, well, Thanksgiving decorations. Can’t wait until next fall’s harvest to try this!

    I just bought my first persimmons at the Gilbert Farmer’s Market last week and didn’t know what to do with them. Now I know how I’ll be spending this wonderful gray evening!

    yum. I made a persimmon cake for Christmas with a light cream cheese icing – it was amaaaaazing! can’t wait to try this, and your persimmon pudding!

    I love persimmons and made the tastiest persimmon cookies around Thanksgiving. This recipe looks delicious and your snow day sounds so blissful. Hugs!

    I’ve been taunted by this throughout Twitter ~ I’m going to make it this weekend!

    We ate some really perfect persimmons while visiting my in-laws in California over Christmas. Now I just need to find them in Pennsylvania so I can make this cake!
