Mix the flour with the milk, and whisk in the eggs.
This batter should be thin enough to pour.
Stir the batter into the chopped mixture.
Butter a baking dish and line it with the pork fat.
Pour the mixture into the dish and bake it, uncovered, in a preheated 350° F. [180° C] oven.
When the top is browned, after about 45 minutes, test for doneness with a skewer.
If the skewer comes out with dough on it, cover the cake with a piece of buttered wax paper and continue baking until the skewer comes out clean.
Unmold the cake onto a warmed platter and serve it hot.
It may be served with tomato sauce or gravy, but the authentic farmhouse dish is served plain.
