  2. Sprinkle strawberries with 1 tablespoon sugar. Set aside 10-15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine pastry flour, baking powder, baking soda, almond flour, flax and salt in a medium bowl.
  4. In a larger bowl beat coconut oil with sugar until thoroughly combined and creamy; add half the almond milk, half the dry ingredients, remaining almond milk, the cultured almond milk, almond extract, and remaining dry ingredients. Beat at slow speed until smooth. Stir in strawberries. Pour into prepared pan, scatter with blueberries and arrange peach slices on top.
  5. Sprinkle topping (below) and hazelnuts over all.
