  3. Gradually add the warmed cream to the melted chocolate, make sure you keep stirring. Do not panic if the chocolate begins to split, just add a little cold cream and stir until it becomes thick and glossy again. Spelt Bread (3)

    Hello! It sounds as if you do not use the Orange juice, just the zest. Is that so?
