Crustless Buttermilk Pie


Yesterday I found myself hankering for something sweet but not over the top; somewhat easily assembled but not too involved. Plus, I wanted to use up my buttermilk. Hence, I found a recipe from Everyday Finesse for this crustless buttermilk pie, which I never knew existed. It was quite delicious. Tart yet sweet; smooth and custardy. It reminded me of a lemon tart. Anyway, this was one of the better ways I’ve found to use up leftover buttermilk. Definitely recommended.

Crustless Buttermilk Pie adapted from Everyday Finesse

3 eggs
1-1/4 c. sugar
1-1/2 c. buttermilk
1/3 c. plain flour
1 tbsp. butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
Dash of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Break eggs into bowl or 6-cup liquid measuring cup. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Grease a glass pie plate with butter or Pam. Either fill greased pie plate with the pie mixture and place into the oven on a center rack, or to avoid spills, pull out the center rack of the preheated oven with an oven mitt and place pie plate on the rack. Then pour the pie mixture into the pie plate and carefully push the rack back into the oven. Be sure to do this carefully so as not to touch the hot oven. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.

    Looks and sounds great! And we can always use more ways to use up buttermilk. I’m intrigued that it’s like lemon tart – seriously love that!

    Very interesting tart! And it probably lends itself to a few variations too, like fruit inside.

    I love crustless pies, so much less bother and equally delicious and just the thing to use up some pesky leftover buttermilk.

    I am going to have to share this one with my dad. He always makes a crustless pumpkin pie – I am sure this would be right up his alley 🙂

    I’ve had buttermilk tart but always with a crust. I am really craving it without the crust.

    This is one pie I’ve never tasted…it reminds me a bit of a sugar cream pie (which I’ve never eaten, either) which is a Hoosier specialty. I need to give this a try…I have a feeling the family would love it.

    This looks sooo good! It’s nice because it has a lot of household items in it so you can just easily whip up a batch whenever you feel like it (me tonight now that I’m craving this stuff hahah).

    This looks a little like Nigella’s gateau breton- though I know the techniques and ingredients are quite different. Looks like your teeth would sink right into it! Yummy!!
