Preheat Oven 350 degrees:

Combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl.

Gently beat the eggs; add the vanilla, lemon juice and vegetable oil to the milk and slowly add to the dry ingredients, while stirring into the batter.

Butter a bundt pan and add the batter.

Bake approximately 35 - 40 minutes or until the toothpick test comes out clean.
