  1. Place a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat oven to 375° F. Grease a 9x5-inch baking pan with non-stick baking spray.
  2. Line with parchment paper so that two flaps of paper hang over the sides. Grease the parchment paper too, then set the pan aside.
  3. Place strawberries in a single layer across a rimmed parchment lined baking pan. Drizzle lightly with olive oil. Roast for 15 minutes until the strawberries are softened and some of the moisture has cooked out of them. Remove the pan from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
  4. In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  5. In a medium bowl whisk together eggs and sugar until the eggs are thick and pale in color.
  6. Add the sour cream and olive oil and whisk to combine.
  7. Add the lemon juice and vanilla extract.
  8. Add the dry ingredients all at once to wet ingredients and whisk together until smooth.
  9. Add the roasted strawberries and fold to combine.
  10. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Fold in the pan if you find the all the strawberries are towards the bottom of the loaf pan.
  11. Place in the oven and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out with only a few moist crumbs.
  12. Allow to cool in the pan for 20 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack to cool to just warm. Slice into thick slices and sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving.
