It’s a new year and I have a new piece of equipment in my kitchen. As a Froothie Ambassador, I get to try out innovative pieces of kit from time to time and this air fryer, the Optimum HealthyFry, is the latest. What a great way to Jumpstart January.
I have a new piece of Froothie equipment to play with. It’s an Optimum HealthyFry – a rapid air fryer that can bake cakes too. Who’d have thought it?

With my promise to bring you all things vegan this month, I have created this rich and fudgy chocolate banana cashew cake. Ladies and Gentleman, forget the banoffee, I give you banashew.
Who remembers chocolate limes? Sweets of yesteryear, that like Marmite, you either loved or hated. If you like the combination of chocolate and lime, you’re really going to appreciate this chocolate lime cake. It’s similar to a lemon drizzle. The sponge is made with lime zest and cocoa which is then drizzled with lime syrup once baked.
