Put this in a preheated oven any 165℃ and bake for 65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted inside comes out clean.Take it out when done
Let it cool down for 10 to 15 minutes in the tin then take it out of the tin, this will help it not fall apart
Note: This is a very tasty banana bread but the cooking time is far too long. I was lucky enough to catch mine in time after 1hr 15 minutes. It was overdone on the top but completely cooked through. I'd go as far as to say an hour is long enough cooking time.
