Spiced Persimmon Slice   Serves: 20
2 c. persimmon pulp
Juice and zest of 1/2 a lemon
3.0 cup wholemeal flour
3 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
3 tsp cinnamon, ground
2 tsp nutmeg, ground
Dash of real vanilla
1/4 tsp cloves, ground
1 cup brown sugar
3.0 large egg whites or egg replacer for 2 eggs
1 1/2 c. applesauce or prune puree (or pumpkin which gives a nice colour...)
1/2 c. currants or other dried fruit (cranberries or cherries are good)
1 t. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Sift dry ingredients into bowl.  Beat egg
whites or replacer, add to pulp, then add liquids and dried fruit. Do not
over mix or it will be like rubber!  Mix dry ingredients into pulp mixture.
Pour batter into a large well sprayed 'slice' or brownie tin.  Bake for
about one hour or until done. Watch closely! The result should be moist and
somewhat heavy.  A friend in Australia makes the same thing with mangoes -
sounds divine!  She also adds 1/4 cup of wheatgerm.
