What's your go-to recipe for when visitors drop by?

My standby is an apple tea cake. Occasionally I mix it up by using pears!

Looking for inspiration for something quick, nice and foolproof that I  can whip up tomorrow morning.

I have most pantry / baking ingredients...

I make something very similar to this.  Best with fresh peaches but I've made many times with tinned peaches (in juice).  Just make sure you drain them really well.

Yum, that looks delicious and easy. No peaches in the pantry today, but will bookmark it for another time.

I do have puff pastry, so might try it with apples...

Fresh ripe pears are good too!  

I keep meaning to give it a try with some tinned apricots as DH loves apricot tea cake, but keep forgetting to buy some.

I like this scone recipe. They turn out perfect every time. You will need some jam and cream on hand though.

I got this slice recipe from an EBer, it’s so easy and so delicious - butter, sugar, an egg and sultanas basically.

My go to is a lemon polenta cake.

I can get in the oven in 15 mins, it's all done in the food processor and it's bang on every time. We have a lemon tree, and the rest is just pantry plus eggs and sour cream or yoghurt.

Refrigerator biscuits (lots of recipes on google) are my go to. I make a double batch and put half the dough in the freezer for another time. I then put choc chips, nuts or mini m n m’s (these are always the most popular) on top of the bikkies before I bake them.

In 20 years of 'adulting' I can't remember the last time someone 'dropped by'...but if they did, I'd suggest we go out for a coffee :lol:

Betty Crockers Lemon cake is perfect with tea though!

Margaret Fulton’s scones are always a hit. Otherwise a lemon cake is easy and can be made ahead of time.

This really got me thinking. In the city, I rarely have people ‘drop in’. People of my generation will text and we are more likely to meet at a cafe. There are a few choices within walking distance and hundreds within a short driving distance. I’m the same and will text to arrange a catch up and wouldn’t just drop by someone’s home even if I am literally driving past.

In the regional areas I’ve lived, it was a common thing to do. Especially by those older than myself (40’s). Not only would my IL’s drop in, they’d tell others to drop in and visit us. Friends would come for morning tea but it would be prearranged usually. It reminded me that’s why the lemon cake was a regular of mine - I had a big lemon tree and the cake would stay fresh for a few days out of the fridge. I would also have cookie dough in the freezer to bake for kids who might be visiting. Rarely had milk though. People knew to bring their own milk or accept cream in their coffees.

My favourite would be whole meal date scones. I used to be able to have them cooked in 30mins.
Simple and tasty with butter. They use the cheap dates too.

"Drop by" was perhaps a misdirection. Sorry!

I have a friend coming over, definitely pre-arranged. But low fuss as we both have infants.

Drop ins would be lucky to get a biscuit, if we have a pack squirelled away...

I've posted this on here before, it's so good and so easy

I use buttermilk instead of the quark, as I have no idea what that is.
