Almonds - regarded as a tree nut although technically a seed of the Almond tree's fruit - make a great and versatile baking ingredient and topping. Whether they're used as a 'sprinkler' on porridge for added crunch or ground into mixtures for a subtly sweet flavour in frangipanes or Bakewell Tarts, they're a delicious must-have in your autumn food cupboard.
