Soft and tart lemon and poppy seed cake

This lemon and poppy seed cake is delicious thanks to the fact that it remains soft, sweet but at the same time super fragrant and tart. It’s a simple lemon bundt cake but with the characteristic flavor and crunchiness of poppy seeds. Try it either in a heart shape or a classic round shape and decorate with powdered sugar or a simple glaze with melted white chocolate.
