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
  • 1 tbsp Brown sugar

  • 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.
