I am having trouble getting my banana bread done in the center without it burning on the outside. I cover it with foil about half way through, have tried glass and a non stick loaf pan and bake at 350

I am having trouble getting my banana bread done in the center without it burning on the outside. I cover it with foil about half way through, have tried glass and a non stick loaf pan and bake at 350.  My oven temp seems to be accurate.  I have made this bread many times in the  past without a problem but the past few times this has been the  result.  Any suggestions???

Your could try when half way through the baking to turn down the oven to 325 and bake it 15 min past the total time required.

 I don't   use glass baking pans, I use teflone coated tin baking pans and my Banana Nut Bread turns just fine.

Put it on the top rack so it doesn't burn.

My thought is the same as Mary's, to turn the oven temp down to 325 and bake longer. Also is your weather extra humid? Maybe that has some affect on the baking time.

If you live at a high altitude, this could be why it doesn't cook in the middle. Try a lower temperature and check periodically to see how it is doing. Maybe it is not the baker, but the stove. How old is your stove? I had one at our cabin that was over 30 years old and the oven temp was never on the mark. New stove, better baking!

I'd say lower oven temperature and a little longer baking.  I always bake  2 loaves at a time and one is in Pyrex and the other in some kind of heavy coated pan.  They both bake the same.  Sometimes they might be a bit "gooey" in the middle (where have we seen that before?) but I  know it is because I took them out too soon.  I've never had a burning problem.   Sometimes an oven can get off the mark over time
