  4. Mix eggs and sugar in a large bowl until mixture is thick, pale and tripled in volume.
  5. Gradually sift flour mixture over egg mixture while simultaneously folding in with a large metal spoon until just combined.
  6. Pour a small amount in your tin to cover the base (around 0.5cm thick). Place the first pie on top. Cover with more batter until covered completely then repeat with next two pies.

  2. Another silly American craze; to them all pies are sweet. They’ve never heard of a meat pie. Now, there’s a thought; how about a triple tier ordinary Aussie on top of a chunky beef on top of a steak ‘n kidney, served swimming in mushy peas and slathered with tomato sauce? 🙂
