3 Put all the mixture into the prepared souffle dish and level the top.
4 Microwave on full power for 7-9 minutes, until a wooden cocktail stick (toothpick) inserted into the centre comes out clean.
5 Remove from microwave oven and stand for 5 minutes, covered with a clean tea (dish) towel.
6 Turn onto a cooling rack and, when cold, split and fill with lemon curd.
7 Melt the chocolate on power 3 for 4 minutes. Beat well until smooth.
8 Pour the melted chocolate over the cake.
9 Allow to cool. Decorate gateau with rosettes of whipped cream and a scattering of nuts if liked.
