Poires au Chocolat is one of the best blogs out there if you're looking to find unique, breathtaking dessert recipes. This Chocolate Pecan Krantz Cake is a perfect example of what writer, cook and photographer Emma is capable of.

The yeast dough is rolled and folded around layers of chocolate and pecans. It's twisted into a gorgeous braid and looks almost too good to eat. Until you tear into those chocolaty layers and realize that there's really no turning back. 

If you've been searching for a rustic-looking, delicious dessert, this part-bread, part-cake, completely stunning Krantz cake is right on the mark. Check out Poires au Chocolat for more sweet recipes, photos and inspiration.
