You always knew chocolate and nuts went together hand-in-hand, but a little reminder never hurt anyone.

San Francisco–based Guittard is the gold standard of chocolate, which is why chefs ask for it by name. The company’s new cookbook is a collection of five generations’ worth of recipes for everyone’s favorite chocolate desserts. When it comes to baking, especially for something simple, like this decadent yet delicate chocolate caramel pecan Bundt cake, the best ingredients make all the difference. 

There’s something about the patterns that emerge on this delicate cake that make me feel like I’ve been transported to my grandmother’s kitchen in the 1950s. This is an all‑in-one cake — caramel topping, pecan filling, and delicious cake that cook all at once! Guests will be convinced that you slaved over this Bundt cake, but it’s really an easy recipe. Once you pop it in the oven, your work is done. I make this as often for brunch as I do for a dinner party.
