Preheat the oven to 180C.
Beat the eggs and the sugar together in a large bowl, for about 5 minutes.
In another bowl, mix the semolina, the flour, the poppy seeds, and baking powder.
Add vanilla and lemon zest and flour mixture and blend lightly. Pour into an oiled cake tin.

To make the extra delish honey syrup, simply in a bowl (or jar) with spoon stir well until melted the honey, water and lemon juice.
When the cake has cooled slightly cut into squares and pour the syrup over it bit by bit. Let it soak up first before pouring any more on.
