So I attempted my first loaf of bread tonight and I blew it. It's flat and way wide (I tried a free pan loaf). It's about 2 inches tall and very spongy. It has roughly the consistency of a corn muffin. It's vaguely edible, but not very breadlike.

So is there anything culinary I can do with this or should I just chuck it on the compost pile?

I'd say stuffing, but if it doesn't taste good, then your stuffing won't taste good. Bread pudding? Blech. Bread crumbs? Maybe. Croutons? I don't know, probably not.

Just write it off to experience, and see if the birds fancy it.

I was thinking bread pudding, personally. Or fondue. –  Aaronut Dec 5 '10 at 2:46
If it's got a crumbly texture, I'd go for the breadcrumbs, then bake them in a low oven to try them out for storage. Feed the rest to the birds. –  FoodTasted Dec 5 '10 at 3:35
