Get ready the individual loaf tin moulds, muffin tins or base-line a 9 inch/23 cm square baking tin with baking paper.
Pre-heat the oven to 180 C/350 F/Gas 4.
Weigh and mix together the flour, almonds, xanthan gum, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, and salt, making sure any lumps are completely broken down. (TIP: Weigh into an airtight container and shake vigorously). Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat together the butter and brown sugar until pale and creamy.
Add the golden syrup and continue to beat until thoroughly combined.
Add and beat in the eggs one at a time.
Fold in the mashed bananas.
Fold in the buttermilk.
Fold in the flour and chopped dairy toffee, until just combined (being careful not to over mix).
Pour the batter into the loaf moulds or cake tin and smooth the tops.
Thinly slice the extra banana and use to decorate the top of the cake batter.
Bake for about 20 minutes (mini loaves) up to about 40 minutes for a tray-cake, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean and the top springs back to the touch.
Remove from the oven and cool in the moulds for 5 to 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.
