The meat must always be first in the flour, then in the egg, then in the breadcrumbs. This is the only way for the breading to stick to the meat.

Flour schnitzel

Dip the beaten schnitzel in flour, we cooks call it flouring.

Prepare schnitzel cornflakes.

Bake schnitzel

Then bread the meat slices in the cornflakes and press gently to create a cornflakes coating.

Heat a large, wide pan with oil and fry the schnitzel on both sides for about 4 minutes over medium heat.

You can keep the schnitzel warm at 140°C hot air level.

This is useful, for example, when guests come.

3. How To Bread the Schnitzel With Cornflakes

When it comes to flour, wheat flour type 405 or Wiener Grießler has proven itself, you can also use gluten-free flour.

Whisk the beaten eggs in a bowl with a fork.

The cornflakes coating will taste better if you add some cream, salt, pepper and sweet paprika to the cream.

Use unsweetened cornflakes, otherwise your schnitzl will mutate into a dessert.

  • Hello Thomas, after I made your Wiener Schnitzel I noticed this recipe. We tried it with the Conrflakes breading (What a word 🙂 and it tastes delicious. My cooking question for today: Would you recommend olive oil for frying schnitzel? Thank you and best regards


    • Hello Stefanie, thank you for your comment and the praise for the corn schnitzel. I do it once a year and I always look forward to the special breading. Your cooking question about olive oil: You can generally use olive oil for frying at low temperatures. In Italy almost every risotto approach is made with olive oil. I also know Italian chefs who roast their meat in olive oil and swear by it. On the other hand, a lot of lard is used in Italy, but that's another matter. My oil recommendation for frying the schnitzel is: Use lard, rapeseed oil or sunflower oil or corn oil to fry the schnitzel. These are purified oils and they are temperature resistant. If you accidentally overheat the pan, that's no problem, the oil remains stable. For all those reading along… here –> Wiener Schnitzel recipe with Viennese waltz 🙂 I wish you continued success and a summer that is not too hot! Kind regards Thomas


  • Hello Thomas, I tried your schnitzel with the cornflake breading… with it there was bean salad (of course also according to your recipe!) and a few homemade fries. Heeeeeeeeeery! 😉 In the summer, we might try the dish you recommend on a colorful leaf salad. It's great that you present such a wide range of variants – which are always well received, everywhere! Kind regards and a happy new year! Rika
