Persimmon Cheese Loaf

Yum

Orange vivid color of fruits has attracted me so much that I have decided to buy some to see if I could make a dish using them. It needed several days to ripe; just enough to think about what to do.
This loaf is my version of what I have found at www.kirbiecravings.com .

Persimmon Cheese Loaf is perfect breakfast dish to have with a cup of coffee or tea; works well as a dessert.

The fruit itself is sweet so I did not add more than 4 Tbsp of sugar not to overpower it. If you shall serve it with some ice cream or ready made pudding that also has some sugar in it, I think this quantity (4 Tbsp of sugar) is enough to mix for a loaf.
As I was investigating about Persimmons,I have red it is best to pick the fruits up around fool moon. Doing so, the fruits are sweeter. So, all of you, having a chance to check this out, see if it works.
Also, I was absolutely amazed to read that the plant is among the oldest in cultivation, known for its use in China for more than 2000 years !
