Directions

1 Preheat the oven to 350F, with a rack near the center. Oil an 8-by-2-inch round cake pan. Dust the pan with flour, tapping out the excess. 2 Set aside 1 cup of the berries for garnish. Put the remaining 1 cup berries into a small bowl with the corn kernels. Sprinkle with the 2 tbsp. flour and 2 tbsp. of sugar. Stir gently to coat and set aside. 3 Stir together the remaining 1 cup flour, 3/4 cup sugar, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk together the eggs, buttermilk and olive oil in a small bowl or measuring cup. Stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture just until they are well combined. Gently fold the floured-and-sugared berries and corn into the batter. 4 Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake until the top is golden and a toothpick inserted near the center tests clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack until almost completely cool. Run a thin knife around the inside edge of the pan to loosen the cake sides. Invert a flat plate or baking sheet over the pan and invert the pan and plate together to release the cake. Lift off the pan, then invert the cake again onto a serving plate. 5 A few minutes before serving, toss the reserved berries with the remaining 2 tbsp. of sugar. Serve the cake slightly warm or at room temperature. Top each slice with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired, and a scattering of sugared berries.
