Dark chocolate buttermilk pie
A super easy dark chocolate buttermilk pie that you can share with others (or not)
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time1 hr 25 mins
Total Time1 hr 40 mins
- 1 and ½ cup dark chocolate chips you could also use bittersweet or semi-sweet
- 1 and ½ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 6 eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 and ½ Tablespoons vanilla extract
- One 9″ pie crust homemade or store-bought
Preheat oven to 325°. Position a rack in the center of the oven.
Melt chocolate chips in a saucepan/double boiler and melt over low heat, stirring constantly. (I actually melt them in the microwave: 30 to 40 seconds, stir and go again for 30 to 40 seconds until melted.)
In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, flour, and salt until well combined. In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla. Add the sugar mixture and mix with an electric hand mixer or whisk vigorously. With a rubber spatula, stir the melted chocolate into the batter.
Pour batter into the pie crust. Place pie in the oven on the middle rack. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 25 minutes, or until the pie is crisp on top and a knife inserted in the center comes out with just a bit of moist chocolate on it.
Remove from the oven and cool completely. Let stand at least 1 hour before serving.
If not eating immediately, refrigerate the pie. This pie can be served warm or chilled.
