  • 9x9” baking pan


  • cups 220g blanched almond flour
  • cup coconut sugar
  • ½ cup 57g tapioca flour
  • cup 43g coconut flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • ¼ cup 50g refined coconut oil, melted
  • 2 Tbsp 44g pure maple syrup
  • 1 regular egg or flax egg see Notes
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup diced strawberries plus about 8 sliced strawberries for topping
  • Turbinado sugar optional


  • Preheat oven to 350º F and lightly grease a 9" square baking pan or 9" cast iron skillet with coconut oil.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut sugar, tapioca flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk thoroughly. Form a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the dairy-free milk, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, maple syrup, egg, and vanilla extract.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. You’ll have a thick batter. Fold in strawberries. Pour into the prepared pan and spread the batter evenly. Top with the sliced strawberries, and sprinkle with Turbinado sugar, if using.
  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the toothpick inserted comes out clean and the cake springs back when pressed with a fingertip.
  • Let cool completely before removing it from the pan and serving.


For the flax egg, combine 1 tablespoon flax meal and 2.5 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Whisk and let gel for 5 minutes before using.
