Lemon-Curd Cakes with Poppy Seeds

"The lemon-poppy seed combo is classic," says Vinny Dotolo. "When I was a kid, I ate lemon-poppy seed muffins for breakfast and with ice cream for dessert." Now he turns the pairing into lovely cakes: They have a tender cakey layer on the bottom, a luscious curd-like layer on top and poppy-seed crème fraîche to finish the whole thing off.
