I'm always looking for new ideas for me to cook and for my sleuth Caprice! Breads are a staple of my Italian background and I wanted to come up with one that was a little different. This bread is wonderful any time of day but this one is especially good just out of the oven and warm for breakfast! I hope you enjoy it.
CAPRICE'S PEPPERONI AND CHEDDAR BREAD
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease and flour a 9 inch by 5 inch bread pan
1/2 cup 2 percent milk
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 ounces turkey pepperoni, torn or cut into small pieces
8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
Beat eggs until they are frothy. Add milk, flour, baking powder, ground mustard, and salt. Beat until smooth. Stir in pepperoni and cheddar cheese. Pour into prepared 9 inch by 5 inch pan. Spread evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes until golden brown. Cake tester should come out clean. Remove from pan after 10 minutes. Enjoy warm. Refrigerate remainder when cool.

USA TODAY Bestselling Author Karen Rose Smith is an only child who delved into books at an early age. She learned about kindred spirits from Anne of Green Gables, solved mysteries with Nancy Drew and wished she could have been the rider on The Black Stallion. Yet even though she escaped often into story worlds, she had many aunts, uncles and cousins around her on weekends. Her sense of family and relationships began there. Maybe that's why families are a strong theme in her novels, whether mysteries or romances. Her 87th novel will be released in 2015.
Readers often ask her about her pastimes. She has herb, flowers and vegetable gardens that help her relax. In the winter, she cooks rather than gardens. And year round she spends most of her time with her husband, as well as her four rescued cats who are her constant companions. They chase rainbows from sun catchers, reminding her life isn't all about work, awards and bestseller lists. Everyone needs that rainbow to chase.
Karen looks forward to interacting with readers. They can find her at the links below.
