I love ‘easy’ and this Crustless Buttermilk Pie is as easy as it gets! Seriously one of the easiest, most delicious custard-type desserts you can whip up in no time. Just a few simple ingredients and then into the oven. You’ll have a smooth and delicious old-fashioned Buttermilk Pie everyone will love.

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 this be frozen?
Hi! I have not tried freezing it. Sorry I can’t be more help 🙂
Can you bake in ramekin dishes, an if so does temp or the change any?
Hi Teri! You can definitely try using ramekins, but I couldn’t give you a time since I haven’t tried it yet. My assumption is it would take less time so you should keep an eye on it while it bakes. Let me know if you try it!
this was my first time making this scrumptious yummy pie it was an easy recipe to follow , and its amazing, thank you for sharing
Hi Tracy! So happy you loved it! Thanks for commenting!
Love it 😀
I made this and it was the easiest recipe ever!
I did some swaps.
I used 1/2 light Brown sugar and 1/2 Lakanto monk fruit sweetener. I also added a Tsp of Maple extract (still used the vanilla) and Tbsp cinnamon. I want to make the original recipe because this was so easy and delicious and so I know what it should be like.
Mine came out almost like a sticky toffee pudding or very moist cake.
It was warm with caramel notes and pure comfort. It would be amazing with some whipped cream or ice cream.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Letty! I’m so happy you loved it! It’s my favorite quick dessert! I appreciate you stopping by and commenting!
What a great find! So easy and tasty….I reduced the amount of sugar to a scant cup, as it is quite sweet. Was thinking something tart as a compliment like fresh blackberries, or some kind of lime cream….Lots you can experiment with. This will be my go-to dessert for pot lucks this summer. With a scoop of ice cream….Yay!!
