  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons all purpose flour

  1. Preheat oven to 350°

  2. In an eclectic mixing bowl, mix eggs until super frothy and bubbly.

  3. Add butter, flour and sugar and beat for 2-3 minutes until well combined and fluffy.

  4. Add buttermilk, lemon juice, vanilla and nutmeg until very smooth.

  5. Pour into the 9 inch pie tin.

  6. Bake for 40-50 minutes until a knife comes out clean when inserted in the center.
