Prep Time 10 minutes

Servings 10


  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/4 cups 6 oz. almonds, lightly toasted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup packed Domino Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups Domino Golden Sugar divided
  • 2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 quart strawberries hulled and quartered


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F and lightly grease a 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Line the bottom with parchment paper and grease the parchment paper as well.
  • Use a food processor to finely grind the almonds. Transfer them to a large bowl and add the flour, baking powder, orange zest, and salt. Whisk everything together until well combined.
  • In the food processor, blend the eggs, Domino Dark Brown Sugar, and 1 cup of Domino Golden Sugar until the mixture becomes pale and thick, which should take about 2 minutes. While the processor is running, slowly pour in the olive oil until everything is fully combined. Then, add the dry mixture and pulse until just combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then invert it onto a plate, remove the parchment paper, and transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • In a large bowl, use an electric mixer on high speed to whip the heavy cream, vanilla, and the remaining 1/4 cup of Domino Golden Sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread this whipped cream over the top of the cake and then generously pile the strawberries on top. Enjoy your delightful strawberry cake!
