Grease a 12-cup non-stick Bundt pan or spray well with non-stick pan spray.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment cream the butter. Add 2 cups of sugar and beat well. With the mixer running at low speed, add the eggs one at a time. Add the vanilla.

Working in alternating batches, and mixing after each addition, add the dry ingredients and ½ cup of the lemon juice to the butter mixture. Add in the grated lemon rind, Mix until just smooth.
