Preheat the oven to 170º C and grease a heart-shaped mold, or with another shape. Sift in a bowl the flour with the chemical yeast, the baking soda, and the salt. ** Mix with some rods in another container ** the sugar with the olive oil, the lemon juice, and the fresh cheese. Add the eggs and beat a little.
Incorporate the flour and lavender. Mix everything well until you get a homogeneous mass without lumps. Fill the mold, equalizing the surface, and bake for about 35-40 minutes, until when you prick the center with a stick it comes out clean. Unmold and let cool on a rack.
For the glaze, wash and chop the strawberries. Place them in a saucepan on the fire with the rest of the ingredients, and cook for a few minutes until they are very soft. Crush with a chopper or blender and adjust the level of sweetness to taste. Paint the cake when it is still not cold so that it absorbs the flavor better.
