Turn on the oven at 440°F. Grease the form and add some dried breadcrumbs. Put the fat and sugar into a bowl and stir it porous. Add one egg at a time and stir. Stir down the sour cream/milk and then add the flour mixed with the spices and bicarbonate. Pour the mixture into the form. Bake it in the lower parts of the oven for 50-60 minutes.
