I noticed that as well. I honestly didn't find the episode bad at all, which is why i put it in quotes.

Also, the pan I was originally using was too small. Good thing I was watching.

That looks more like a brownie but still looks good.

it would definitely benefit from a real bread pan, but I'm happy with it. It tastes great!

I made one as well, though changed it up a little:
  • 12 ounces all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 1/2 ounces Cheddar/Monterey Jack, grated
  • 12 ounces beer
  • 2 oz spent grain (weighed damp)
Followed the same method for mixing, just added in the spent grain to the initial mix. I sprinkled a little spent grain on top along with some grated parmesean cheese. Haven't tried it yet, but it looks/smells delicious.

If you added it before baking, it would be black. If you added it right after baking, it would probably work.

I saw the episode and I am going to make this soon. I will post pics.

So my first attempt at the bread didn't work out so well. First, we didnt have any all purpose flour (wha?!) so I used bread flour. Then, I put the sunflower seeds in the batter instead of on top. So I took it out at 45 minutes and wasn't even to 200 so i put it in for 5 more min, took it out and it was at 200 put it back in and finally called it quits at 205. After resting it flattened out and was real spongy and didnt taste good at all. I might try it again if someone else says they had good results...

The bread flour probably has too much protein for this recipe and it won't rise well. Try it again with AP flour.

If you have cake flour you could just use a combo of the two and get pretty close to AP. I forget the ration though but I think it is 60 bread 40 cake.
