It means that if your eggs are straight out from the fridge they will create lots of coconut oil lumps. The best is to store your eggs out of the fridge the day before or at least 4 hours before making this recipe.
Otherwise, use melted butter instead of coconut oil. This will not happen with butter.

Of course, you can freeze this almond flour pound cake. First, slice the whole cake into 16 slices. Then, freeze the keto lemon loaf into a ziplock bag or in an airtight container.
Make sure the slices do not overlap, it makes it easier to defrost one by one. Finally, defrost your slices the day before at room temperature.
The next day, toast the slices into the toaster if you like. Of course, if you freeze your sugar-free lemon cake with the frosting on top don’t bring it to the toaster.
Enjoy plain or spread some sugar-free jam on top.
