The raspberry glazing is refreshingly light und works without nuts. I’m using sunflower seeds as an alternative. Please be aware, they need some soaking prior to cooking.

To make the glazing set I use agar agar powder. It’s important to only use pure agar agar powder. I’m also using baking measuring spoons. One teaspoon equals 5 ml.

Also, measurement is crucial when working with agar agar. I’m using measuring spoons. 1 teaspoon equals 5ml.
