Help - new to bread making


I got a Panasonic bread maker as a birthday gift. I have made five beautiful and delicious loafs using a recipe from a blog. When tried the first recipe from the Panasonic guide (yogurt whole wheat bread), the result was this weird looking loaf of bread! I have been trying to find in the internet pictures of bread similar to this one to understand which was my mistake, but I have not been able to find an explanation. I would appreciate your insights! Thanks

Is it done baking or is it liquid?  Have you got a close up crumb shot?  The more information provided the easier it is to address what could have gone wrong.

From what I can see, either add 3 Tbls of water or deduct 2 Tbls of flour.
