I promise – this is the LAST recipe. Thanks, Tamera Alexander for getting me re-hooked on Southern cooking. All y’all will REALLY want to get the book, A Beauty So Rare, so you’ll have ALL the recipes!
Yum! Here’s Eleanor Braddock’s delicious Buttermilk Pie “as read in” A Beauty So Rare, the second standalone Belmont Mansion novel. Are you a Buttermilk Pie fan? And no, you don’t have to love buttermilk to love this pie. You just have to love Southern scrumptiousness! Have you ever tasted a bit of heaven on earth…I mean…Buttermilk Pie?
Southern Buttermilk Pie
2 1/2 cups sugar
4 large eggs beaten well
5 ounces buttermilk
2 Tablespoons and 2 teaspoons plain flour
1 stick melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix well by hand in a medium-size bowl (oh, how I love a “one bowl” pie!), then pour the mixture into an unbaked pie shell (do not prick the pie shell with a fork beforehand). Bake pie at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes until firmly set, then get ready to savor this delicious Southern delicacy…just like Marcus did! I’ve been making this pie for over thirty years. It’s a family favorite for sure, and so easy! The custard is creamy and smooth, while the top bakes to a golden yummy crunch. Enjoy!
