How to Make Orange-Cranberry Persimmon Breads in Your Air Fryer

These little mini loaves are a fantastic way to use up ultra-ripe persimmons if you're lucky enough to have any. The breads are sweet, moist, and filled with sweet spices and orange flavor. Tart dried cranberries add texture and keep the bread from being "too sweet." I like to drizzle the warm breads with an orange glaze for even more flavor, but you can leave the glaze off, if you prefer. You can puree the persimmon pulp by hand or in the food processor. The batter mixes up in minutes, and the mini loaves cook in 15-20 minutes in the air fryer. Try the breads for breakfast, as a snack with tea or coffee, or even for dessert. Enjoy!

Air Fryer Orange-Cranberry Persimmon Breads -- Makes 4 Mini Loaves


1/2 cup of canola oil

1 1/2 cups of persimmon pulp (5-6 smallish Fuju persimmons)

2 large eggs

2/3 cup of sugar

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1 1/2 cups of flour

1/2 cup of quick cooking oats

1 teaspoons of baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of allspice

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon of ginger

2 teaspoons of grated orange zest

1/2 cup of dried cranberries


Glaze


1/2 cup of orange juice

2-3 tablespoons of sugar

2 teaspoons of butter


Coat four mini-loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, stir or whisk together well the oil, persimmon pulp, eggs, sugar, and salt. Stir in the flour, oats, baking powder, spices, and grated orange zest until blended. Fold in the dried cranberries. Let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes, then stir it gently again. Divide the mixture among the four mini-loaf pans. Put two filled pans in your air fryer basket, put the basket in the air fryer, and air fry the loaves at 320 degrees for 15-20 minutes. While the loaves are cooking, make the glaze by adding all the ingredients to a cup, stirring them, and microwaving them for 45 seconds. Stir the glaze and microwave it again for about 15 seconds or until the butter melts completely. Remove the two cooked loaves from the air fryer basket to cool and put the remaining batter-filled pans in the air fryer to cook, as you did the first batch. After the two cooked loaves have cooled for about five minutes, turn them out onto a piece of waxed paper. Drizzle the bottoms of the cooked loaves with a little of the glaze, then turn the loaves over and drizzle the tops with a little glaze. When the remaining two loaves have cooked, glaze them, too. The loaves will slice best if you let them cool completely before slicing them.
