Banana bread recipe baking time??

trolley | Jun 30, 2012 11:01 PM

I made this recipe tonight and it calls for the bread to be baked for 1 while hour. i thought that was quite long for the amount of batter which wasn't much. the only variation i made to the recipe was reduce the sugar by a 1/8 of a cup or so.

i checked it at 30 minutes and the bamboo stick came out clean. however, bc i had a bad incident with an under baked vegan banana bread last time i trusted the recipe and let it bake for an additional 15 min. of course, when i checked after 15, it was over baked. i looked at the comments in the recipe and no one seems to have had trouble with the recipe in the way i did. my oven runs cold as well so it can't be my oven.

any ideas why this recipe calls for such long baking time?
