   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       c            Flour
    1       c            Sugar
    1       t            Soda
    1       t            Baking powder
    1       t            Cinnamon
      1/2   ts           Salt
    1                    Egg
    1       t            Vanilla
      1/4   c            Milk
    1       c            Persimmon pulp
    1       tb           Melted butter
    1       c            Chopped nuts
      1/2   c            Raisins
    1                    Egg yolk
      3/4   c            Powdered sugar
    1                    - 2T rum or brandy
    1                    Whipped egg white
      1/2   c            Whipped cream
   Mix the persimmon puree and the baking soda together
   and let it stand. Cream together the sugar and butter,
   then add the egg, milk, vanilla, (rum), and persimmon
   mixture. Add the remaining dry ingredients and mix.
   Pour into well-buttered pudding mold or tin can (i.e.,
   a coffee can). Fill them only 2/3 full. Place the mold
   on a trivet in a pan over a few inches of boiling
   water. (I use one of those folding steamer baskets).
   Cover the pan and steam over low heat for 2 hours. You
   will need to add more boiling water as it evaporates.
   When a skewer tests clean, it is done.
   Let stand in the mold uncovered for about 15 minutes.
   Turn onto a plate and let cool, or serve warm with
   hard sauce or whipped cream. Beat the egg yolk with
   powdered sugar and rum or brandy. Fold in whipped egg
   white and whipped cream.
