Mix until batter completely blended with no lumps. Let sit 5 minutes and mix again one more time after coconut flour has chance to expand. Bake for 30-35 minutes in 350 degrees preferably in two 9 inch parchment lined pans but this time 1 large 10 inch pan was used fir thicker cake.  Allow to cool 10 minutes then invert and remove parchment paper. Allow to fully cool before frosting.
