Prep time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 40 minutes
Total time: 55 minutes

Ingredients –

For the cake:
3/4 cup good, fresh olive oil (I like California Olive Ranch)
2 cups sugar
4 eggs

For the cream:
8 ounces mascarpone cheese
2 tablespoons bourbon
1/2 cup heavy cream whipped with 1 teaspoon powdered sugar to soft peaks
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

Method to Prepare-

Preheat oven to 325 F. Grease the Bundt pans very well with canola spray.

Whisk the oil, sugar and eggs together until light and fluffy.

Whisk in the dry ingredients and mix just until well combined.

Fold in the apples and vanilla.

Make the cream by stirring the mascarpone and bourbon together until smooth, then gently fold in whipped cream.

For serving, place a mini Bundt cake on each plate and mound a generous dollop of bourbon cream in the center hole. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts.

Prep time: 35 minutes
Bake time: 35 minutes
Total time: 70 minutes
Yield: 10 servings

Ingredients –

For the crust:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup hazelnuts, toasted
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Pinch of salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) cold butter, cut in pieces
1 egg

For the filling:
3 Fuyu persimmons, about 1/2 pound each, peeled, cored and sliced 1/4-inch thick
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon dried ginger
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1 tablespoon apricot jam, melted
1/2 teaspoon large-crystal turbinado sugar

For serving:
Whipped cream

Method to Prepare-

For the crust:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease tart pan thoroughly.

Put flour, nuts, sugar and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse on and off until the nuts are ground into flour and the ingredients are well mixed.

Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

Add the egg and pulse until the dough clumps together.

Press the dough on the bottom and sides of a 4-inch-by-14-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. (You can also use a 9-inch square pan or a round tart pan.)

For the filling:
Combine the persimmons with lemon juice, sugar and spices and stir until all slices are coated.

Layer the fruit decoratively in the prepared crust so the slices overlap.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until crust is golden brown and persimmons are tender.

Remove from oven and, while hot, brush fruit slices with apricot jam. Let cool slightly then sprinkle evenly with turbinado crystals.

Cool on a rack then remove the sides of the pan.

At serving time, top each slice of tart with a dollop of whipped cream.

Ahan, don’t forget to accompany the desserts with a glass of wine!
