Preheat oven to 400°F. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a bowl. Add buttermilk, oil and vanilla; mix with a fork until just combined. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough onto lightly oiled baking sheets to form 12 shortcakes and bake until light golden brown and cooked through, 12 to 13 minutes.

In a large bowl, toss berries with maple syrup and set aside. Whip cream until it holds soft peaks. Halve warm shortcakes and arrange on plates. Spoon berries and their juices onto shortcake bottoms. Dollop with whipped cream, then replace shortcake tops and serve.
