How do I know when my Banana Bread is Ready?

The toothpick test is a tried and true test and essential when modifying a recipe, or switching pan sizes. When baking, time is a suggestion and by no means exact. Everyone’s oven is different (gas, electric, convection), and many are inaccurate. Baking times also vary based on moisture content in bananas, climate, and elevation.

I usually keep a close eye on my banana bread for the last 5-10 minutes. As soon as I think it might be ready, I open the oven door and slide a toothpick into the bread or muffin. Just stick a toothpick into the center of your banana bread. If there is wet batter still on the toothpick, it needs more time in the oven. If it comes out clean, your bread is done!

My tip for Super Moist Banana Bread

I tend to take breads, cakes, and such out before the toothpick comes out perfectly clean. I do this because it will continue to cook even after you remove it from the oven. This is extremely important for perfectly moist banana bread.
