Steamed Persimmon Pudding with Cinnamon Crème Anglaise

['Nonstick vegetable oil spray', '1 1/2 cups all purpose flour', '1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder', '1/2 teaspoon ground ginger', '1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg', '1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon', '1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt', '1 1/2 cups sugar', '1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature', '2 large eggs', '3/4 cup fresh persimmon pulp (from about 2 large Hachiya persimmons, pureed in processor)', '1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice', '1/4 cup apricot preserves', 'Cinnamon Crème Anglaise', '8-cup metal pudding mold']

Butter and flour one 8-cup metal pudding mold with center tube and lid, then generously spray mold with nonstick spray. Butter, flour, and spray lid. Bring large kettle of water to boil. Place round cake rack in bottom of deep pot large enough to hold pudding mold. Whisk 1 1/2 cups flour and next 5 ingredients in medium bowl. Using electric mixer, beat sugar and butter in large bowl until fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour mixture and beat until blended. Beat in persimmon puree and lemon juice.
Spoon batter into pudding mold; cover with lid. Place pudding mold on cake rack in pot. Add enough boiling water to come halfway up sides of mold. Return water to boil, cover pot, then reduce heat and simmer until top of pudding feels firm to touch and tester inserted near center comes out clean, adding more simmering water to pot to maintain water level, about 2 hours.
Remove mold from pot. Uncover pudding; let cool. Invert onto plate. DO AHEAD: Can be made 2 days ahead. Cover; let stand at room temperature.
Bring apricot preserves to simmer in small saucepan. Strain through fine strainer set over bowl. Using pastry brush, spread preserves over outside of pudding. DO AHEAD: Can be made 8 hours ahead. Cover and let stand at room temperature.
Serve pudding at room temperature with Cinnamon Crème Anglaise.
