Preparation:

  1. Prepare cake baking tray. (I used a 22cm one.)
  2. Blend the almonds and dates into a dough-looking mass.
  3. Layer out the base of the baking tray with the almond-date mix (keep in mind that the base will be quite soft, so you might want to make it on a serving plate from the start).

  5. Pour the almond milk in a pot, add chia seeds and 30g agave syrup.
  6. Bring the mix to a boil.
  7. Add 10g agar-agar into the liquid mix and stir vigorously until it is completely dissolved.
  8. Turn off the stove and let the mixture cool down.
  9. Take the base layer and pour in the chia seed mix.  Put it back in the fridge.
  10. Bring the strawberry purée to a boil together with the remaining 10g of agave syrup.
  11. When the mixture starts boiling add 5g agar-agar. Stir vigoroulsy until it dissolves. Take it off the stove.
  12. Let the strawberry mix cool down.
  13. Once the chia seed layer is not sticky anymore, spoon the cooled strawberry mix on top.
  14. Let the cake set overnight.
  15. Enjoy!
