Servings 4


  • Cast Iron Griddle
  • Spatulas
  • Blender
  • Whisk
  • Wooden Spoon
  • 2 Mixing Bowls
  • Strainer


  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup 2 Percent Milk
  • 2 medium Persimmons extra ripe is better
  • 1 medium Egg
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder

  • Transfer pureed persimmon to the next mixing bowl. To the persimmon, add egg, sugar, cinnamon powder, vanilla extract, almond essence, and nutmeg. Mix ingredients together well with the whisk.
  • Combine the persimmon mixture with the flour mixture. Use the wooden spoon to mix together.
  • Heat the griddle over high heat for 2 minutes. I used a cast iron griddle because it distributes heat very well and creates a nice crust on the outside of the pancakes.
  • Lower flame medium to low. Add a small dab of the unsalted butter onto the heated cast iron.
  • Use the spatula to help you pour the persimmon pancake mixture onto the buttered griddle.
  • Look for bubbles that will form on the surface of the pancake. As soon as you see the air bubbles form, this is a signal that the pancakes are ready to be turned over.
  • Carefully flip the pancake with the pancake spatula and cook for another 1-2 minutes or until golden brown.



If you do not have a griddle, a regular frying pan works just as well.

  1. Question about how much persimmon, about how much volume would you estimate that to be? I have persimmon pulp, but don’t know how much to use. Thanks!

    The amount of cinnamon and nutmeg is not in the recipe, and you don’t mention when to add the milk. I did make this and it came out gooey. I suspect that is my fault though. I’m not much of a pancake maker. The flavor was not very sweet for what I would expect from a pancake but I think some tweaking could salvage my attempt.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Angela. I appreciate your feedback very much. Pancakes from my experience are usually not sweet. The pancake or maple syrup are poured over it. Glad you tried making it. Keep practicing, practice makes perfect.
