- In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until crumbly. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Beat in oil, juice, peel, vanilla extract and, if desired, poppy seeds. In medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with yogurt, beating just until combined.
