Make no mistake: I am a chocolate girl.

Oh, I understand the appeal of fruity pies and strawberry ice cream. It’s just that if you give me a choice between one of those and chocolate, I’ll go with the chocolate. Every time. Well, unless that non-chocolate contender is Sugar Sweet Bakery’s peach jam cake.

It’s a knockout.

The peach jam cake will make the most die-hard chocolate dessert fan switch teams.

Four layers of a moist, vanilla cake sandwich orange stripes of the most lovely, chunky, homemade jam that tastes like perfectly ripe, fresh peaches plucked seconds ago from the orchard.

Rich vanilla butter cream swaddles the cake in a robe of melt-in-your-mouth sweetness.

When you see it tucked into the bakery’s brown to-go box, filling the entire space, you’ll think, “There’s no way I can finish that.”

But you can. And you will.
