Quick bread temps

Billow Fair | Feb 27, 200810:25 AM

I've been working on perfecting a banana bread recipe, and while I'm getting there I wonder if there are any accomplished bakers out there who can tell me what internal temperature to shoot for in a quick bread like banana bread. I've researched a dozen recipes, an while they are all pretty similar as to ingredients, the cooking times vary from 45-75 minutes. Measurements seem to be so exact in professional baking recipes, why are methods for testing doneness so imprecise? It seems that an instant thermometer would be SO much more exact than a dry toothpick...or am I just being too anal?
