  • Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 10-12 cup Bundt pan with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and poppy seeds until well combined.
  • Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter until smooth.
  • Add sugar and beat on med-high until pale and fluffy (2-3mins).
  • Reduce speed and add eggs one at a time, fully incorporating after each addition.
  • Add vanilla, sour cream, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Beat well to combine.
  • Alternate adding flour mixture and milk, beginning and ending with flour (3 additions of flour and 2 of milk). Fully incorporating after each addition. Do not overmix.
  • Add some batter into your prepared pan and press it into the cracks of the bundt pan with a small spatula. Add remaining batter until pan is no more than 3/4 full. Smooth the top with a spatula and whack the pan against the counter to evenly distribute.
  • Bake for 50mins or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean.
  • Place cake on wire rack to cool for 10mins. Whack the pan on the counter to loosen the cake and turn out onto wire rack.
  • Cool completely before dusting with powdered sugar.
