  • Beat together butter and granulated sugar in another bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until pale and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Beat in eggs until combined. Reduce speed to low, then add flour mixture and poppy seeds and mix until just combined.
  • Transfer batter to cake pan, smoothing top, and bake until a wooden pick inserted in center of cake comes out clean and top is golden brown, about 30 minutes.
  • Cool cake in pan on rack 5 minutes, then invert onto rack.
