Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat bottom and sides of an 9-inch pan or cast iron skillet with a drizzle of olive oil.
In a bowl, whisk the flour, cornmeal, both sugars, baking powder, and salt together. In another bowl, whisk the olive oil, ricotta, eggs, and vanilla together. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and whisk until just combined.
Slice the strawberries and mix them with the balsamic glaze. Fold in 1/3 of the strawberries into the cake batter with a spatula. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smooth the top, and arrange remaining strawberries on top of batter. Add fresh herbs (optional).
Bake until top is golden brown, center is firm, and a cake tester or toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 45-55 minutes. Let cake cool in pan for 15 minutes.
Servings suggestions: vanilla ice cream, yogurt or more ricotta and/or more fresh balsamic glazes strawberries.
