Miss Yoder’s Buttermilk Pie

Written by Patti on March 4th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

My dear friend, John Channell, whom I have known forever, sent me this recipe from Miss Yoder of Inverness, Florida, our hometown.

Miss Yoder lived across the street from the little red school house I went to in the third grade. It was everything you would hope a school to be. Big, red brick, wooden floors, huge windows you could sit in.

But that little schoolhouse is gone now. But Miss Yoder’s Buttermilk Pie recipe remains. And I am going to share it with you.

And it’s crazy easy and so delicious you might be tempted to eat it all by yourself. But go ahead and share it with someone you love. They will feel so pampered.

Miss Yoder's Buttermilk Pie

Here is the recipe as it was given to me:

So, it might be a bit hard for you to decipher, here is the recipe typed out. No matter how much I love a handwritten recipe, it doesn’t do you a lot of good if you can’t read it. And when I baked the pie, I found that 50 minutes worked better for my oven.

Miss Yoder’s Buttermilk Pie

1.5 cup sugar

.5 cup Bisquik (don’t judge…)

1 cup buttermilk

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 T vanilla

3 eggs

Stir together the sugar and bisquik, then,

Stir in buttermilk and oil, then,

Stir in the vanilla and the eggs, one at a time

Pour mixture in 9″ pie plate and bake at 350F for 50 minutes

Gobble up with loved ones and sit around and smile at each other!

xoxo, Patti

    Oh, Patti…I, too, have such fond memories of the red school house! So sad it’s not there anymore…

    @Lisa, thanks!
    @Par, wasn’t it the sweetest little school house. It’s where the Parri and Patti story began! xoxo

    Yes…we did begin there! Your pie looks delicious! Buttermilk pie is one of my favorites. I’ll have to try Miss Yoder’s (vague memory of the house across the street) version! xoxo

    Is it true that there’s no pie shell?

    Nope, no pie shell necessary!
