This moist cocoa and poppy seed lemony Bundt cake is just waiting to be sliced and eaten. Poppy seeds lend it a pleasantly crispy texture, while cocoa gives it a chocolatey touch. We want to keep its sweetness under control, so we spike its taste with refreshing lemon juice added to the cake itself, but mostly into the icing.
