I mentioned in a previous post that Will made Buttermilk pie and JP from itsmyhusbandandme on WordPress asked if they could have the recipe.
Buttermilk pie is a custard-like pie. Originally from the United Kingdom. It is similar to, and sometimes confused with, cheese pie but it does not include cornmeal.
JP promised me in writing in front of a Notary that he would not eat the pie in bed, let’s see if he is as good as his word. I am sure he is a gentleman in the old Etonian tradition.
So here is the recipe:
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/8 tablespoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
- Add all ingredients to list
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). (GAS MARK 4 in UK)
- Beat eggs until frothy; add butter, sugar and flour. Beat until smooth.
- Stir in buttermilk, vanilla, lemon juice and nutmeg; pour into pie shell.
- Bake for 40 to 60 minutes, or until centre is firm.
