Launching our first concert for care homes!
We are excited to announce that the first of a series of con spirito concerts for care homes is being sent out this week! Enormous thanks to everyone who generously contributed their performances, to Adrian Lee for video production, to Gene at HackmanPitmanWilder for the fantastic logo and special thanks to Fernando for his excellent work on the editing.
Several residential homes are already planning to share the online concerts, not just here in London but also as far away as America! We welcome email enquiries from care homes to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is today's delicious recipe, with our best wishes for a sunny half term break!
Blueberry Sour Cream Cake

175g butter, softened
175g caster sugar
200g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
142 ml pot sour cream
for the topping
200g full fat soft cheese
100g icing sugar
Heat oven to 180°C non-fan. Butter and line a 23cm round (preferably spring-form) cake tin.
Put butter and sugar in a bowl and beat till creamy. Add eggs, flour, baking powder, vanilla and 4 tablespoons of the sour cream and mix. Stir in half the blueberries.
Tip mixture into tin and bake for 50 minutes or till firm to touch. Cool for 10 minutes before taking out of tin.
Beat the soft cheese with the icing sugar and the remaining sour cream until smooth and creamy. Spread over the top of the cooled cake and scatter with remaining blueberries.
