1. This is how Breading with Cornflakes and Frying works

For flour, a wheat flour type 405 has proved its worth, you can also use gluten-free flour. Beat the eggs in a bowl with a fork. The cornflakes coat will taste better if you add some cream, salt, pepper and sweet paprika to the cream. Use cornflakes unsweetened, or your schnitzel will mutate into a dessert.
