Preheat oven to 350. Butter and flour a 10-inch tube pan. In a large bowl, with electric mixer at low speed, beat together sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla, just until blended. Increase speed to high. Beat until light and fluffy, about five minutes; scrape bowl occasionally.
In separate bowls, combine flour with baking powder, and milk with liqueur. With mixer at low speed, add liquids alternately with flour mixture; beat until well blended. Stir in hazelnuts and poppy seeds.
