Sponge Cake Base

Strawberry Jam

  • 2 cups strawberries remove stem and chop in half - 600 grams
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds 20 grams
  • ½ cup agave syrup 140 grams
  • 2 tbsp agar agar


  • 2 cups vegan whipped cream 300 ml
  • 1 cup strawberries 150 grams


For the vanilla cake

  • Preheat the oven to 360˚F (180˚C). Then line a7 inch (18 cm) round cake tins with a round piece of parchment paper.
  • Sift the flour into a bowl.
  • Add sugar, baking soda and salt and whisk together.
  • Add soy milk, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and apple cider vinegar and fold in gently till the ingredients come together. Don't over mix.
  • Pour the cake batter into the cake tin and bake for around 60 min at 360˚F (180˚C). To check if cooked, Insert a toothpick into the cake. If it comes out dry the cake is ready. If wet, bake for longer. Let the cake cool completely before cutting it or layering it.
  • Start making the strawberry jam while the cake cooks.

For the strawberry jam

  • Remove the stem from the strawberries, cut them in half and place them in a blender.
  • Add the chia seeds and the agave syrup.
  • Blend for a few seconds.
  • Pour the mix into a sauce pan, bring to simmer and cook on low heat for about 15 minutes.
  • Let cool down, it will thicken up. If you want the jam thicker we suggest adding 2 tsp of agar agar. Boil the agar agar in the jam for 1 minute while stirring. Let cool down to thicken.

For the whipped cream

  • You can either whip up some ready made vegan whipping cream, or whip together a can of very cold full fat coconut cream with 1/4 cup of icing sugar.

Build the cake

  • When the cake is cool, cut it in half with a serrated knife add the strawberry jam on top of one of the layers.
  • Top with the other layer, and cover it completely with the vegan whipped cream. Use a knife or a spatula to spread the whipped cream evenly around the cake.
  • Decorate the top of the cake as you like. We use some whole strawberries on top.
