    1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. Combine the melted butter and caster sugar, then stir well. Add the sour cream and whisk together until smooth. Sift in the flour and baking powder, then knead together to a smooth and stiff dough.
    3. Using the meat grinder attachment to your stand mixer, pass handfuls of the dough through the grinder. Spread the bits of dough evenly over a baking tray.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
    5. Meanwhile, beat the butter until light and creamy. Beat in the caramel until well combined.
    6. Add the cooled bits of cake to the caramel mixture. Stir and fold together until well incorporated.
    7. Mound the mixture onto a serving plate. Using buttered hands, form the mixture into an ant hill. Sprinkle with poppy seeds.
