Persimmon Muffins Moderately Sweet Made with Pancake Mix

These are simple muffins made with very ripe persimmons and pancake mix. There's no need for sugar, these are made with the natural sweetness of persimmon.

Ingredients: 6 muffins

Pancake mix
200 g
100 g (about 1 persimmon)
Butter (melted)
30 g
2 tablespoons
Persimmon (for decoration)
A small amount


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Melt the butter.
2. I used a super ripe persimmon that was almost as deeply red as a tomato. Peel the skin and cut out the seeds and the tough area around the seeds. Please refer to the Helpful Hints.
3. In a bowl, add the mushy persimmon from Step 2, egg, and milk, and mix together well. Add the melted butter and continue mixing.
4. Mix in the pancake mix to Step 3. Pour into the muffin cups. Top with a thin persimmon slice.
5. Bake for 20 minutes at 180ºC.

Story Behind this Recipe

We have a persimmon tree at our house, so we always have a lot of persimmons. So of course, they get overripe and mushy. This recipe rescues them.
