Add eggs, one at a time, beating until incorporated after each. Beat in flour mixture in 3 additions, alternating with the lemon juice and vanilla, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Beat in food coloring.

Let cool completely in pans on wire racks. Run a knife around edges of cakes to loosen. Unmold. Cakes can be wrapped tightly in plastic and refrigerated for up to 1 week.
