  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan and dust the bottom with flour.
  2. Step 2

    Mix flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, ginger, and nutmeg together in a small bowl. Add walnuts and cranberries; toss or mix using your fingers to ensure cranberries don't stick together.
  3. Step 3

    Whisk eggs, brown sugar, and oil together in a medium bowl until eggs are well beaten. Stir in persimmon pieces followed by flour mixture. Pour into the prepared loaf pan.
  4. Step 4

    Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 1/2 hours.
  5. Step 5

    Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Slide a knife around the sides and slide loaf out onto the rack to finish cooling, 15 to 30 minutes more, before cutting.
