Ingredients
  • Olive spray oil
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour sifted
  • Zest and juice of 2 lemons divided
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt divided
  • 2 cups strawberries (1 cup diced and 1 cup sliced) divided
  • 1 1/4 cup lightly packed light brown sugar divided
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter cubed
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
Method

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly coat 2 (9-inch) round cake pans or a 9x13-inch baking pan with spray oil.

In a large bowl, whisk together pastry flour, lemon zest, baking powder, baking soda and 1 teaspoon of the salt until well combined.  

In a medium bowl, combine diced strawberries and 1 cup of the brown sugar. Using the back of a fork, mash until strawberries are juicy. Add lemon juice, eggs, oil and sour cream and stir until blended.   

Fold strawberry mixture into flour mixture and gently stir until no streaks of flour are visible. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan(s). In a small bowl, combine butter, all-purpose flour, remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Using the back of a fork, lightly mash until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over cake(s). Arrange sliced strawberries on top, gently pushing them down.   

Bake until a toothpick inserted into center of cakes comes out with moist crumbs, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
