8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature, plus extra for greasing the pan
1 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
teaspoon salt
cup milk
cup poppy seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Grated zest of 2 limes
Double recipe of Lime Glaze

1. Preheat the oven to 325F. Grease a 10-inch Bundt pan.
2. Cream the butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
3. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Add to the creamed mixture alternately with the milk. Mix well after each addition.
4. Fold in the poppy seeds, vanilla, and grated lime zest. Pour the batter into the prepared Bundt pan.
5. Set on the center rack of the oven and bake until the edges shrink away slightly from the sides of the pan and a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Let the cake cool in the pain for 30 minutes before turning it out onto a cake rack.
6. When the cake has cooled, prick holes in it 1 inches apart with a long toothpick and pour the lime glaze evenly over the top. Serve warm with ice cream on the side.
