This is not a cold and creamy pudding, but more like an old-fashioned plum pudding. The warmly spiced persimmon dessert is baked, and is almost like a a rich pumpkin pie filling. Serve with ice cream!
This bread pudding is very versatile and lovely in texture. Christmas time can inspire a bread pudding by simply substituting a good-quality eggnog for the milk (or part of it). Also add a pinch of nutmeg and mace to produce a sumptuous holiday dessert. Otherwise, enjoy this just as it is with a dollop of whipped cream.
