The New York's Bumpy Cake

By Kristi Kates | March 11, 2017

Since 1904, the elegant New York Restaurant in downtown Harbor Springs has been welcoming guests with its old–school feel and classic American menu that features such retro favorites as oysters on the half shell, filet mignon, tuna nicoise and hangar steak.
But if you skip the dessert menu, you’re definitely missing out, especially on one dessert in particular.

The New York’s house–made “Bumpy Cake” should be on every cake fan’s must–consume list. On the surface, it may look like any other cake, albeit with a strange looking top layer; but that, devotees of sweets, is the Bumpy Cake’s secret.

On the bottom, you’ll find three layers of rich just–spongy–enough chocolate cake sandwiched together with vanilla buttercreme. But the top – the “bumpy” part – offers piles of rich buttercreme covered in chocolate glaze, and that sugary surprise is what puts this cake over the top.

Order up a slice ($6.50) at The New York Restaurant at 101 State Street, Harbor Springs; visit online at thenewyork.com or call (231) 526-1904.
