Persimmon Cheesecake Pound Cake Bars are creamy and flavorful, made with a layer of buttery pound cake and topped with  cheesecake and persimmon jam swirls.

Cheesecake Bars are one of my favorite desserts, they are very easy to make and don’t require as much precision and babysitting as an actual classic cheesecake. Here are a few of my favorites: Slutty Cheesecake Brownie Bars and these Hazelnut Cheesecake Bars.

Persimmon Cheesecake Pound Cake Bars Recipe Tips

Persimmon Cheesecake Pound Cake Bars combine two of my all time favorite desserts. See, I am a cheesecake girl at heart, but pound cake is another favorite, I love the unmistaken buttery and rich texture. Combining them both for a more wintery dessert with Persimmon Jam swirls, was a no brainer. This was one good decision, the cheesecake bars are such a tasty treat. They are creamy, flavorful and most important very easy to make.

First, you have a layer of buttery vanilla pound cake, that is dense and rich. The pound cake is topped with a creamy layer of cheesecake, to which I added a hefty amount of persimmon jam. You can make this recipe with any jam you have on hand, or you can just skip it for a more classic dessert.

What do you need to make Persimmon Cheesecake Pound Cake Bars?

  • Dairy: cream cheese, butter, heavy cream, milk and sour cream – make sure the ingredients are at room temperature.

These bars look amazing & I can't believe I missed the persimmon jam recipe.. Here in Spain they call them "caquis" and I've never really liked them but making jam is genius!!
