5Transfer the mixture into a non-stick or well-buttered (or both) tin or mould.

It is not essential, but I recommend putting the tin in the fridge for an hour or more to firm up the mixture; this helps it rise better as it cooks.

Remarks

Do take care not to over-toast the poppy seeds. They are very small, so 5 minutes is plenty long enough.
For a more intense lemon flavour, add a little more lemon juice.
