Top Rated Buttermilk Recipes

This elegant dessert is almost like a French clafoutis, with lush ripe fruit nestled in a creamy egg filling. Buttermilk gives it a tang that makes the filling almost like cream cheese, and the lemon keeps it bright and fresh tasting. The ripe raspberries seep a little of their purple-pink juice into the white filling, and the whole thing is so pretty you’ll hardly want to cut into it. This is a tart, wide and shallow, rather than a deep pie, so be sure that you form the piecrust into a 10-inch tart pan with a removable bottom.

Cucumber Soup, Basil, Buttermilk
Cold buttermilk soups are an old-fashioned tradition, a tangy zip for fresh, summer vegetables that need little else. Here, the sweet, grassy mellowness of cucumbers is paired with that summery perfume of basil, distilled into a finishing oil you can keep on hand to drizzle on future soups and salads. It's an irresistible, bright, almost ethereal combination that may well sum up the season. But we didn't stop there; We gave the pairing a tangy jolt with buttermilk and sour cream so that the flavors can't turn listless. If you've got weekend guests for a dinner party this evening, skip this one as a second or third course and consider serving it in shot glasses as a midday pick-me-up on the deck. — Vegetarian Dinner Parties Click Here to See More Soup Recipes

Maple Custard Pie
The sweet maple syrup imparts a subtle, but not overwhelming flavor to the buttermilk custard, and the star of the pie is the cornmeal crust, which is a welcomed change from traditional pastry crusts in this pie from the Four and Twenty Blackbirds cookbook.

This lasagna is something different and special, most notably because the sauce is made entirely of buttermilk, which works beautifully, making a creamy béchamel with a flavor that hints of butter but without the fat. If you don’t have your own tomato sauce from the garden, try to buy San Marzano tomatoes in the can — I think they are hands down the most flavorful canned tomato. This dish is surprisingly uncomplicated to put together, despite the fact that I skip the alluring ease of no-cook lasagna noodles and use the traditional kind. The no-cook kind have their place in a busy kitchen, but they lack the robust texture and flavor of old-fashioned lasagna noodles.

Beet and orange is a classic combination, but they can be almost cloyingly sweet together. With a bracing dash of buttermilk, you can enjoy the best of this combination but cut some of the sweetness. Sometimes I sprinkle fresh dill on top, for a different flavor profile. It’s a wonderfully refreshing soup on a hot summer night.
