I Baked a Persimmon Pudding

This last week I tried baking a persimmon pudding for myself.  My pudding was ok but I would not serve to my friends. What went wrong with my Persimmon pudding.
Here is the recipe.
2013 winning Persimmon Pudding
Cynthia Brewer King
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
 1/4 cup of melted butter
1/4 cup of half and half

Cream together pulp, sugar and eggs. Put soda into buttermilk and stir until frothy. Sift dry ingredients together. Add dry ingredients and buttermilk alternately to pulp mixture. Add butter and half and half. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour in a 9-inch by 13-inch pan.

Not wanting to go out to the grocery,  I sent my young, 18 y.o. friend Casey to buy some ingredients for the pudding.
One of the ingredients I needed was buttermilk. Do you know what buttermilk is? Guess what? Casey had no clue what buttermilk is and brought home Buttermilk Pancake Mix.
Casey I ask, "how is pancake mix going to work as an ingredient for my persimmon pudding?"
So Casey told me he could not find buttermilk and the equally young gal working  in the store did not know how to find buttermilk in the refrigerated dairy product area of the store.
So without buttermilk I plunge on ahead and we mix our ingredient and bake the persimmon pudding.

So how did did my persimmon pudding taste after baking and cooling?
It was delicious and also really, really sweet because it did not have the buttermilk to bring down the sweetness of the sugar and the natural sweetness of the persimmons.

 So lesson learned from this story is to always go do your own shopping to buy what you want. And especially don't send a young person of 18 because you will be surprised what they don't know.
