Come and sing with us! Singing is for everyone

When you sing with a group of people, you learn how to subsume yourself into a group consciousness because a capella singing is all about the immersion of the self into the community. That's one of the great feelings - to stop being me for a little while and to become us. That way lies empathy, the great social virtue. 
Brian Eno




Sing from the Heart

Singing is for everyone! We look forward to welcoming you to De Tout Coeur Limousin soon.  A few videos of our Sing from the Heart choirs, singing workshops and singing retreat holidays.

Stollen slices 

Stollen is definitely my favourite festive bake - a traditional German cake - packed full of almond rich marzipan, a hint of spice, dried fruit, nuts and citrus zest.  Stollen is often made with a yeasted dough but this is a quick and easy yeast free recipe, usually made with quark soft cheese. If you can't find quark a thick plain yogurt or creme fraiche would be a good alternative.  Happy baking and happy New Year from us at De Tout Coeur Limousin.  

ingredients
175g caster sugar
75g unsalted butter
125g quark soft cheese (or thick plain yogurt/creme fraiche) 


¾ tsp mixed spice

zest of 1 orange 

2 tsp whiskey/rum/brandy (optional) 

1 medium egg


75g ground almonds


100g sultanas


100g shelled chopped pistachios/hazelnuts 


250g strong white flour


1 tsp baking powder


300g marzipan (chopped into 2cm pieces) 


pinch of salt 

25g melted butter and icing sugar to finish



method: 

grease/line a 20cm square baking tin and preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4



Beat the caster sugar, butter, quark (yogurt/creme fraiche), mixed spice, orange zest and alcohol (if using) until well blended then add the egg and mix well. 

Stir in the sultanas, chopped nuts, flour, baking powder, pinch of salt followed by the chopped marzipan.

Spoon the dough into the prepared baking tin and press down well with a wet spoon or fingers.

bake for 30 minutes until golden and an inserted skewer comes out clean. 

brush with the melted butter and leave to cool completely in the tin before dusting with icing sugar and serving in slices.
