2/3 cup butter, softened
1 3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon lemon extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup poppyseeds
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 cups milk

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt pan.

In mixer bowl, mix butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and lemon extract until fluffy. Beat 5 minutes on high speed.

On low speed, mix in flour, poppyseeds, baking powder and salt alternately with milk. Pour into pan.

Bake for about 40 minutes or until pick inserted in center comes out clean, and cake starts to pull away from sides of pan.

Cool on rack, remove from pan.

Spread frosting on top half of cool cake, and enjoy!

I had a desire for a bundt cake, and a pantry inexplicably full of poppyseeds, so I adapted Betty Crocker's Bonnie Butter Cake to make this lemony delight.

Your directions mention salt, but you mistakenly left it out of the ingredient list. How much salt does this recipe call for? This sounds like a really yummy recipe, and once I know the salt amount, I'd love to make it. Thanks!
