Bread Baking: Cheese and Pepper Cornbread

In summer, I like to dress up my cornbread with fresh corn, cut right from the cob. At this time of year, I still like to dress up the cornbread, but with other ingredients, like cheddar cheese and sweet fire-roasted red peppers in this recipe.

If you want something spicy, use hot peppers. But since this batched was intended to be served with some spicy chili, it's sweet and mild. Besides adding extra flavor and texture, the bright red peppers and the orange cheese look darned pretty baked into the bread, too.
