1 cup Horizon Organic whole milk plain yogurt
2 large Horizon Organic eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon lemon zest (about 1 medium lemon)
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 cup sugar
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about 1 medium lemon)
2 tablespoons sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray and flour a 10-inch tube pan or large loaf pan (5" x 10"). In a small bowl whisk together yogurt, eggs, vanilla, lemon zest and poppy seeds. In a large bowl combine sugar, flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in yogurt mixture. Add oil and stir until combined. Spread batter in prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes, until top springs back or a tester inserted in cake comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes on a metal rack, then turn cake out of pan onto rack. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat lemon juice and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Pierce top and sides of cake with toothpick or fork and pour juice over cake.
