This is a yummy way to use Persimmons. It is moist and caramelly - a bit like carrot cake.
Pete proofed the persimmon pudding recipe and Harry decorated the cake. (He always takes the cake!)

1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cups milk

1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon allspice
1 cup chopped nuts - pecans or walnuts are best
