Chocolate Buttermilk Pie

Apr 15

This month for the Chocolate Party, the special ingredient was buttermilk.  This was harder for me than I originally thought.  I have never used buttermilk before for anything….my mom never cooked or baked with it– therefore, this ingredient just didn’t exist for me.  When I went to buy some at the grocery store, I couldn’t even find it, and the buttermilk was literally right in front of me on the shelf.

Buttermilk seems like a southern thing to me, so I need to embrace now that I live in Virginia, right?!?  So I found this recipe from Just A Pinch for Buttermilk Pie.  I brought it to my aunt and uncle’s house for dinner one time, and it was a hit!  The pie was decadent and delicious.  After making this amazing pie, I think I am ready to check out what the other Chocolate Party members made, so I can use all this buttermilk that’s in my fridge :)

  • 2 unbaked pie shells (I used Pillsbury)
  • 2 sticks, unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 3 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cups cocoa powder
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup plus 2 oz buttermilk
  • Servings: makes 2 pies
  • Difficulty: easy


Preheat 350 degrees.

In mixer, combine sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs and mix well. While mixer is going, add flour, cocoa, and salt..

Add buttermilk and the vanilla to the mixture and stir until well mixed.
In two 9-inch pie plates, spray with cooking spray and put a pie crust in each plate.
Pour mixture evenly into the two pie shells. Bake for 45 minutes. The pie should be firm and not jiggle in the middle. Cool completely before cutting. Store left over pie in the refrigerator
