      Wow - what a cake and I am such a sucker for anything with ganache. The lemon came from my garden and I forgot to melt the choc for the batter so added the the choc chips at the end but maybe that's better as it's less likely to overpower the lemon. This dessert vanished very fast !! Made for ZWT 7.
