Default Persimmon Pudding

I was just whipping up a batch of this to take to a July 4th get together. It's a recipe handed down thru my mom's side of the is AWESOME!!!

Granny Greats Persimmon Pudding

1 C brown sugar
3/4 C cold water
Butter about the size of a walnut

Put the above in an oblong cake pan or simlar dish, put in the oven at 350 and let it melt. Meanwhile....

Cream together:
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C white sugar
1 C persimmon pulp
1/2 C shortening
1 1/2 C milk
1 egg
1 t soda
2 t baking powder
1 1/2 C flour
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg

Pour this mixture over the top of the melted brown sugar in your pan. Return to the oven and bake 45 minutes or so until the sides start to pull away from the pan and the top is "crinkly"
