In another bowl add sugar,sourcream,butter and hot milk. Beat till sugar melts.Combine with the above dry ingredients and mix nicely until all lumps dissapear. To mix this you can use the hand blender with minimum speed.
Pour the batter in the greased pan, tap it for all air bubbles to escape. Bake it in the preheated for 30 minutes or test it with a toothpick until it comes out dry and smooth.
Take it out and keep it on a cooling rack. Once it cools overturn it on a plate.Decorate it with a little icing sugar sieved through a stencil.
Note:You can make your own sour cream at home by mixing 1 tsp yogurt with 1/2 cup low fat cream and keep it in a warm place for 3-4 hours to set. And you can use in your recipe as a sour cream.
