Old Fashioned Buttermilk Pie

buttermilk pie

Here is the real deal.  An old fashioned buttermilk pie with crust. It’s a basic, yet rather wonderful dessert. It’s not overly sweet or custardy. It’s light and a little lemony and the addition of berries balances it out nicely – raspberries are my favourite. I personally like making my own pie crust, but it can definitely be made in a store bought crust. So if you have never tried a buttermilk pie, what are you waiting for – they are lovely!Ingredients:

1 1/2 Cups Granulated Sugar

1 Tablespoon of Flour

1 Tablespoon Grated Lemon (or Orange) Zest

4 Large Eggs

1 Cup Buttermilk

1/2 Cup Melted Butter

A handful (about 18) washed raspberries (or blueberries, blackberries) – optional

Your favourite unbaked 10-inch Pie Crust 

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour and zest with a whisk.

3. Whisk in the eggs, 1 at time.

4. Whisk in the buttermilk.

5. Slowly whisk in the melted butter.

6.Pour into the buttermilk mixture into the unbaked pie shell.

7. Place a generous handful of raspberries (or blueberries, blackberries etc) evenly on top. Don’t worry if they sink in.

8. Put into a 400 degree oven and immediately turn down to 350 degrees.

9. Bake for 60 – 70 minutes until the top is nicely browned and the centre is set (with a slight jiggle).

If the top is browning too much (though I find a nicely browned top gives a great crust), loosely place a sheet of tinfoil on top.

Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature. 

Serve or store covered in the refrigerator.

  1. Looks delicious. I think I might try this myself. I’ve never had a buttermilk pie, only read about them in old novels.
