Utah loves to go camping in the summer and one of the great dishes served out of a dutch oven or a normal oven is cornbread. Many of us don't have time to put together a homemade recipe and grab for an easy solution like Jiffy cornbread.

This recipe suggests about a stick of butter and a half a cup of honey for each 8.5 ounce box of cornbread mix. You can melt the butter in the pan you are going to cook the cornbread in, swirl the honey in and mix it all in for a sweet and moist cornbread treat. If you are making muffins, you can add melted butter and honey into the mix before dividing it into the tins.

There is nothing wrong with topping your concoction with more honey butter, but you might find that you don't need any toppings at all, making your addition to the meal that much more portable.

I love taking something easy to make and adding a little extra to dress it up. It is the best of both worlds and this year you will be the cornbread chef of honor.
