This tasty strawberry cornbread cake is terrifically tasty for either breakfast or dessert; it’s sweetened with maple and naturally gluten-free.


  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats or oat flour
  • 6 tablespoons almonds or almond meal
  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk (unsweetened almond milk for dairy-free)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 orange
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons butter, divided (coconut oil for dairy-free)
  • 1 cup strawberries


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. To make the oat flour and almond meal, place the oats in the bowl of a food processor and blend until very fine. Remove the oat flour, then place the almonds in the bowl of a food processor and blend until very fine.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the oat flour and almond meal along with the cornmeal, baking powder, and kosher salt.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs. Then whisk in the milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, ½ tablespoon orange zest, and ⅓ cup fresh squeezed orange juice. Melt 2 tablespoons butter.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, pouring in the melted butter last. Stir with a large spoon until just combined (avoid over-stirring). Let the batter sit for 5 minutes to thicken.
  6. Meanwhile, wash and slice 1 cup strawberries.
  7. In a 10-inch skillet, melt the remaining 1/2 tablespoon butter and use a pastry brush to brush it evenly over the entire pan and sides, then remove from the heat. Pour the batter into the pan and it spread evenly. Then place strawberry slices on top.
  8. Place in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out fairly clean (the center should spring back when lightly touched and the edges will be golden brown).
  9. Let cool for 10 minutes, then slice with a knife. Serve plain, with homemade whipped cream, coconut cream, sliced strawberries, or a drizzle of syrup.
