Notes

In high school I worked at a tiny coffee shop called Java. It was the first time I ever got to bake for strangers, and I loved every moment of it. I worked for peanuts, but I got to use a huge industrial oven and any ingredients that I wanted, so it was all worth it. This cake was one of the best sellers. My mom found a scrap of paper in her recipe box recently with my scrawled teenage handwriting and this recipe on it. Soon as peaches are back in season I am making it again!
