WBTV Charlotte Features Vickie

(Note:  There is a brief commercial that plays first)

WBTV 3 News, Weather, Sports, and Traffic for Charlotte, NC

Southern Date Pudding is a family tradition….It’s been a part of all of our family and holiday celebrations….And it’s always baked in a cast iron skillet.  This is a true Southern recipe and may not be familiar to many people.  But, the ingredients are readily available and it is so easy to make.  You can have this in the oven in less than 5 minutes.  

If you don’t have a cast iron skillet..don’t worry!  You can also make this in a baking dish.   

I visited WBTV Charlotte News Sunday Morning Show and showed how to make this easy and quick dessert.
