Krusty Korn Kobs

Featured in the March 2004 issue of Railfan & Railroad Magazine!

One of the specialties of the Lackawanna’s dining car service was Krusty Korn Kobs. In the book All Aboard With E. M. Frimbo, the story of famous railfan and New Yorker editor Rogers E. M. Whitaker, he is asked, "What were they like?"

"Well, I need only tell you that at this very hour, in the better days, I would be making a breakfast of Lackawanna dining car corn muffins. They were baked on the car, in a mold that shaped them exactly like ears of corn, with practically every ripe kernel in place - so lifelike that one wanted to salt- and-butter them all over, and red-hot out of the oven."

We have found the original recipe to make the famous Lackawanna and Erie Lackawanna Krusty Korn Kobs! We are pleased to offer it in an easy to bake mix form. All you need to do is add milk, butter and eggs. We are also pleased to offer a new version of the Krusty Korn Kob bakeware. This cast iron mold is made in the USA by Lodge Cast Iron. What is even better is that this bakeware comes pre-seasoned! No preparation to this piece is necessary, it is ready for your first batch right out of the box.

The mix will remain good to use for 12 months. Aside from the historical significance of this mix, we have found it to be the best tasting corn bread we have ever tried.
