At Yura on Madison, fresh and generously cut bundt cakes are individually outfitted in custom plastic slips. With a line of flavors including banana-coconut and espresso, it was no easy feat settling upon one, but I left quite satisfied with my cut of sugar-dusted lemon cake. The bundt cake is impressively citrusy in taste, making bright use of both lemon rind and juice. I took each bite in hopes of breaking into an occasional patch of buttered lemon rinds. A single forkful sunk from top to bottom exhibited a range of textures, from the slightly crunchy crust, baked a deep brown, to the luxuriously dense crumb. Immesnely satisfying!
