For the toppings, you'll need fresh strawberries, heavy cream, and sugar.

In a small bowl, whisk together the gluten free 1:1 flour, oat flour, baking powder, and salt.

Combine the dry ingredients


In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together for 3-4 minutes until light & fluffy. Then, mix in the oil.

Cream butter & sugar, then add oil


Scrape down the bowl and turn the mixer down to low speed. Add the large eggs one at a time, scraping the bowl down in between each addition. Add the vanilla with the last egg.

Mix in eggs one at a time


Add half of the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Mix in the buttermilk. Then, add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

Alternate the dry & wet ingredients


Then, add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Scrape down the bowl with a rubber spatula to ensure everything is evenly incorporated.

Add the remaining dry ingredients


Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and smooth out the top. Generously sprinkle with turbinado sugar.

Pour batter into pan


Bake the cake for about 45 minutes or until golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool for a few minutes in the pan, then loosen the sides with a knife and turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.



In a small bowl, toss together the sliced strawberries and granulated sugar. Set aside to macerate.

Macerate the strawberries


In a large measuring cup or large mixing bowl, add the cold whipping heavy cream and sugar. Use an electric hand mixer to whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Careful not to over-whip the cream, as it can quickly split and become grainy!

Make the whipped cream


Transfer the cake to a platter or cake stand. Top the cake with the whipped cream, then carefully arrange the macerated strawberries on top. Enjoy!
