1 . Stage

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a 9-inch square cake pan with enough parchment paper to have overhang on all sides.

2 . Stage

Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg in a large bowl until combined. Cut in butter until mixture resembles wet sand. Measure out 1 cup of the crumb mixture to use for the topping, and set aside.

3 . Stage

Add buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla to the dry ingredients. Mix just until there are no dry clumps of flour remaining. Fold in strawberries.

4 . Stage

Pour batter into the prepared pan and smooth into an even layer. Sprinkle 1 cup reserved crumb mixture evenly over the top.

5 . Stage

Place pan into the preheated oven and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out with a few moist crumbs, 60 to 65 minutes. Allow cake to cool completely in pan before carefully lifting out of the pan using the parchment overhang. Cut and serve.
