The GiMP makes Photos look GREAT, but it still don't make up for a well taken photo to begin with. That being said here is my version of your Grand Canyon image

no, do not add baking powder, unless you are looking for a metallic tasting bread. More then likely you did not proof the dough long enough before putting it into the oven. You should let the dough rise until doubled in size. Don't think because you let it rise for a set number of minutes it is good to go. Also over kneading the dough will cause this. Without knowing what steps were done it is hard to say exactly why your bread is too dense. When kneading with a mixer such as a Kitchen Aid I find about 7-10 minutes is good and if kneading the dough by hand usually 15 minutes.By all means don't get discouraged because of this and give it another try.

they are not passing DC through the transformer it is a pulsed DC that is being passed and then stepped up by the transformer, in this case 220V this is not AC but a pulsing DC IF you look at it on a O-scope you would clearly see it is not a AC signal but a pulsating DC square wave. Anyone with a very basic understanding of electronics would know that. You are introducing a 12 V square way and the output is a stepped up pulsating DC Square wave. All transformers can indeed pass a pulsating DC voltage.
that would be called a modified square wave and really shouldn't be used on sensitive electronics IE: computers, or inductive loads like a refergrator

I make it quite often, though my bread recipe only calls for 4 cusps flour and 1 1/2 cups water approx. and just 1 teaspoon of salt. I get 2 - 2 pound loafs from it. I am not really sure just what putting black pepper into it brings to the table
