#46 - Yakult Bread with Cornflakes


Look at this loaf of bread, isn't the colour beautiful? I still remember that morning of me waking up to this loaf of homemade bread, with colours just like the bright and cheery sunshine. I just love it! 

This is a really simple recipe which replaces the use of milk with my childhood favourite drink, Yakult! If you are in love with this drink like I am, try this recipe! Personally. I only wish that I could add even more yakult to this bread. To me, the stronger the yakult taste, the better! 

Not forgetting the crunchy cornflakes that come along with the bread. If you are as greedy as I am, you may want to consider serving the bread like I did, with a thin layer of butter/ peanut butter, topped with yet another layer of cornflakes! Yummy!


Recipe: Adapted & modified from Everybody Eats Well in Flanders

Yakult (Original Flavour)- 250ml

Caster Sugar - 20g
Salt - 7g
Blue Jacket Bread Flour - 350g (and 2 tbsp more, if necessary)
Instant Dry Yeast - 7g
Unsalted Butter (softened) - 35g
Some cornflakes (crushed)
Egg Wash (1 egg + 1 tbsp water)

1. Pour yakult into the bread barrel.

2. At each corner of the bread barrel, add in sugar and salt.

3. Add in bread flour on top of the wet ingredients. Make sure the wet ingredients are well covered by the flour.

4. In the centre of the flour heap, make an indentation and add in the instant dry yeast. Cover up the yeast with the flour.

5. Secure bread barrel in the bread machine.

6. Select "Custom Procedure" function on your bread machine (On my Donlim T15A Breadmaker, I selected function "21") and input the following settings before pressing "Start".

First kneading - 20 minutes
First proofing - 1 hour
Second kneading - 30 minutes
Second proofing - 1 hour
Baking - 1 hour

7. 10 minutes for first kneading, you should see a dough being formed. Once the dough is formed, add in butter before continuing the process.

8. After second kneading (before the dough undergoes second proofing), paused the machine and remove kneading blade from the bread barrel.

9. Brush the top of the dough with egg wash and roll it over the crushed cornflakes.

10. Return dough to the bread machine for second proofing and baking.

11. When bread is ready, remove bread barrel from the machine immediately. 

12. After removing bread from bread barrel, transfer it to the cooling rack to allow it to cool completely before slicing and serving. 


  1. What a fun bread! Love the cornflakes! I have never heard of Yakult, but it sounds like it might be sort of like keifer, is that right?

    1. I think the two are kind of similar. I have never tried Keifer before so I don't really know.

      Anyway Yakult is a probiotic dairy product made by fermenting a mixture of skimmed milk with a special strain of the bacterium and it comes with many different flavours. Kids love it! :)

  2. This recipe is incredible. I love yakult - have it every day to ensure my insides are healthy - but baking it into bread with cornflakes is inspired! Thanks for sharing.

    1. You are most welcome! I love yakult so much too!! :)

  3. I am vegan and gluten free, but I love the idea of putting cornflakes on bread! It definitely adds a nice texture!

  4. I'm thinking it's kind of like yogurt, probably thick like Greek yogurt. Sounds interesting...sort of like putting potato chips on your sandwich. I'll have to check it out.

    1. Actually not really like yogurt. It's more like a drink, very flavourful too. You totally hit me on that part regarding potato chips! You are so right!! :p

  5. This bread looks like a really cool recipe. Like so many others, I'd never heard of Yakult but I love learning about new ingredients and recipes when reading blog posts. I would totally slather this bread in peanut butter and more corn flakes - the more the better :)
