  • For 2 minutes, heat the griddle over medium to high heat. I used a cast iron griddle because it evenly distributes heat and produces a nice crust on the outside of the pancakes.
    My griddle holds 2 large-size persimmon pancakes.
    If you don't have a griddle, a regular nonstick frying pan will suffice.
    Cast Iron griddle
  • Reduce heat to medium-low. Add about 1 tbsp. of unsalted butter on the heated cast iron griddle
    Pour ½ cup of the persimmon pancake mixture onto the buttered griddle. I personally like large pancakes, but you can make smaller ones if you prefer.

  • Look for bubbles that will form on the pancake's surface. The formation of air bubbles indicates that the pancakes are ready to be turned over.
    Add another dab of butter to the griddle and repeat the process for the remaining pancake batter.

  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!

  2. 2 stars
    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.

  3. It’s the first time I heard of Persimmon. I’ll have to try it, now that I’m curious to find out what it tastes like. The recipe sounds amazing and the pictures are incredible. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
