Can anyone help me. Every time I bake banana bread the bottom of the bread is dark and the top s light. Almost like it is split down the center. I have used all different types of pans so that cannot be the reason.
Mine rises so much that I have started cooking it in a bundt pan. Because of all the eggs and baking powder I add, it rises over the side of a bread pan. The split is just where kept rising as the bottom just sat and baked. Have you tried a cake pan, or just different bread pans?
Mine always splits as well, but it doesn't bother me. To keep the loaf from getting too dark, I double up on the loaf pans (place the filled one inside an empty one), and I put the loaf pans on top of one of my airbake cookie sheets.
