What Ingredients Do I Need for Buttermilk Pie?
You won’t believe how easy this Crustless Buttermilk Pie is! All you need is a few ingredients and you’re set. You will need buttermilk, of course! Other than that all you need is sugar, eggs, melted butter, flour, baking powder, and vanilla.
This homemade buttermilk pie comes out really pretty if you make it in an actual pie plate. A 9-inch pie plate is a perfect size for this recipe, but you can also use a 9 x 9 baking dish. I’ve also made it in a 9.5-inch pie plate and it comes out perfect, just a tad shorter.
The Perfect Quick Dessert
This southern-style Buttermilk Pie is perfect for when you need a last-minute dessert. If you have a sweet tooth or if you want to treat your family to a quick dessert, this pie is the answer. It’s definitely kid-friendly!
If I make it for guests, I usually wait to make it until the guests are here, so I can pop it in the oven while we chat and eat, and when we’re done we can enjoy a warm and delicious Crustless Buttermilk Pie!
How Do You Make Buttermilk Pie?
All you need to do to make this easy Buttermilk Pie is mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. You can use a hand mixer to mix everything on low speed until you end up with a smooth mixture.
Once it’s smooth, you can pour the mixture into your pie plate or baking dish. I use a glass pie dish or a 9 x 9 glass baking dish. You will then place the baking dish on the middle rack of your pre-heated oven.
You’ll bake the pie for approximately 45 to 50 minutes at 350 degrees. In my oven, 45 minutes is perfect. You’ll want to keep an eye on yours to make sure you get the perfect time for your oven. The pie will have a beautiful golden color on top when it’s ready.

Can I add blueberries to this pie?
Hi Judy! Absolutely! Enjoy!
I’m excited to try this recipe. My family loves pie crust … would it be possible to add this to a pie crust? Thanks
Hi Beth! I have never added a pie crust but you can certainly try. Just make sure the baking time of the crust coincides with the time needed for the pie. Enjoy!
Does the pie dish need to be greased first or no? I’m gonna try this with gluten free flour! 🤞🏻
Hi Tabitha! No need to grease it. Let me know how it turns out with gluten free flour. Thanks for stopping by!
Can I substitute almond flour in this recipe?
Hi! I do not bake with almond flour so I wouldn’t be able to tell you if it would work. It’s definitely worth a try and if you decide to try it, do let me know how it turns out!
Yummy! I added 1/4 cup coconut, because my husband loves coconut, but he is loving it!
Hi Alicia! Ooohh, I love the idea of adding coconut! I love coconut too! I appreciate you stopping by and sharing your results!
I was going to Google this ingredient question as I’m a coconut lover, too. Thanks.
Had left over buttermilk from a previous recipe. Wanted to use it up so I tried this recipe and I am so glad I did! Soo easy, sweet and delicious. Thanks for the great recipe!
Hi Molly! I’m so happy you enjoyed the pie! I appreciate you stopping by and sharing your results!
Same here! I’m using the rest for “Buttermilk Salad,” a Southern salad/dessert recipe from the 60s/70s! This pie brought back memories!
This pie was delicious! So easy to make, too!
Hi Molly! I’m so happy you love the pie! I appreciate you stopping by!
Just made butter with leftover whipping cream and have the buttermilk liquid leftover. Am going to make this pie with it. Sounds delicious.
Hi Lori! Oh yum, homemade buttermilk! I hope the pie turns out great for you! Keep me posted! Thanks for stopping by.
Found your recipe today while trying to search for recipes to use up buttermilk. This was TO DIE FOR! I could eat the entire pie in one sitting – especially when warm out of the oven! I only needed to bake for 30 min as the custard was set perfectly. Especially loved the crispy edges. Thank you for sharing! Assuming this needs to be refrigerated if not consumed in a day?
Hi Diane! I’m so happy you loved this easy pie! I rang in the new year with emergency back surgery so I’ve been slow to get to these comments. You do have to refrigerate any leftovers. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog!
Made this today, quick, easy and delicious!
Hi Larry! I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed it! I appreciate you stopping by to share your results.
