1 1/4 cup Fuyu persimmons, cubed
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup agave nectar
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup raisins
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Oil or spray a bundt pan. In a small bowl, mix persimmon, lemon juice, coconut oil or applesauce, and agave nectar. In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients except for raisins. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix just until all flour is moistened (do not over-mix). Fold in raisins. Pour into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40 to 45 minutes if you using a pan for one bundt cake. (Note: A pan for six bundt cakes takes about 30 minutes.) Allow to cool for 10 minutes and then remove from pan. Cool completely before serving.
