Thermobexta’s Sesame Bites


These delicious little energy dense morsels are similar to the chewy sesame bars you can buy from the supermarket, only with more goodness and no nasties. They’re something I loved as a kid and I have been wanting to try my hand at making for ages. I’m so happy with how they turned out and I hope you love them too!

Thermobexta’s Spinach and Three Cheese Rolls

spinach and three cheese rolls
Spinach and cheese are the perfect pair. Add pastry and you can’t really go wrong! This recipe is so quick to make and can be frozen prior to cooking, making it perfect to prep in advance for a party or barbecue, an easy lunch, dinner or snack for the kids. These rolls are great for lunch boxes (the pastry will soften upon cooling but my kids don’t care!)

Thermobexta’s Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding

Chocolate self saucing pudding was the really special dessert we occasionally had whilst growing up. Mum used to make it every now and then and when I moved out I took a copy of her recipe. I’ve made it a few times and every time I do it brings back fond memories of eating it as a kid. Last night I decided I’d take it upon myself to try my best at a gluten free version of that sweet, chocolatey goodness, being that I have quite a few GF followers and well, I wanted chocolate pudding and felt like having a play with mum’s recipe. I’m very happy with how this has turned out and I really hope it makes you happy too! Continue reading Thermobexta’s Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding

Thermobexta’s Anzac Slice

Anzac squares

My go-to recipe for Anzac bickies for the past few years has been one on the TOM Organics website. It was easy to make, used a selection of ingredients I always have on hand and the bickies were just perfect. I went to make them last week and was sad to find the recipe was no longer there! So of course that meant I needed to try my hand at coming up with something Anzac-ish, Thermobexta-style. Continue reading Thermobexta’s Anzac Slice

Thermobexta’s Sticky Lime and Coconut Cake

Sticky lime coconut cake
Well this was a throw together after realising I had no food in the house to feed my kids for afternoon tea today. I had a bowl full of limes and started thinking about good combinations. Lime and coconut won and this little beauty was born. I’m going to say it is possibly even better than my Brilliant Blueberry Lemon Loaf and I really love that one.

Thermobexta’s Lemon Choc Chip Biscotti


‘Biscotti’ are twice cooked biscuits of Italian origin.  They are very crunchy and the perfect morsel to dunk in your cuppa.  Traditionally they contain nuts – have a play around replacing some of the choc chips in this with almonds, pistachios, macadamias or pecans if you’d like nuts in them.  The dough isn’t overly sweet, most of the sweetness comes from the choc chips, so it’s best to not replace all of the choc chips. Continue reading Thermobexta’s Lemon Choc Chip Biscotti

Thermobexta’s Little Lemon Tarts

lemon curd tarts

Here is a fabulous use for all the lemons around when trees are fruiting.  It makes enough curd to fill approximately three batches of the tart bases.  I designed it this way so you can either make a batch of tarts and have curd left over to stir through yogurt, have on toast or crackers, or use however you normally like it use it, or if you prefer you can make multiple batches of the bases to use it all up at once.

Thermobexta’s Chunky Apple Tea Cake

Well, my expert taste testers (ie. my family) tell me that this is the best cake I’ve created.  Since my Cinnamon Crumble Cake recipe went viral, that’s really saying something!  This is a moist cake, with little chunks of apple in every bite and just the right amount of cinnamon.
