1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2. Add flour, baking soda, salt, the zest from the two lemons and the milk. Mix well to obtain a smooth dough.

3. Add the poppy seeds and pour the dough into a silicon cake mold.

5. While it's baking, prepare the glaze by juicing the lemons and mixing them with the icing sugar until they are both blended.
