  • At medium speed, beat in the butter, then beat in the poppy seeds.

  • Bake for 45 minutes, or until the cake pulls away from the side of the pan and a cake tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Remove the foil and let the cake cool in the pan on a rack for 15 minutes.
