The one recipe needed for all kinds of Bread including the Corrupted Bread will be unlocked by taking Wheat for the first time.
No additional specific recipes will need to be unlocked to make Corrupted Bread. After the basic bread recipe has been unlocked, many different types of Bread - like Corrupted Bread - can be made by clicking at the basic bread recipe in the Cooking Station and then by inserting different kinds of liquids additional to 4 portions of Wheat.
To cook 2 loaves of Corrupted Bread at a time, you'll need (as of R32 in June 2016):
- 4x Wheat grown on tilled soil near Water from Wheat Seeds, found when harvesting Tallgrass (and/or Savannah Tallgrass)
- 1x Corrupted Water from the Corruption layer or made by throwing Corrupt Bombs at ordinary blue Water, scooped up with an Lumite Mining Cell (strongest Power Cell)
When consuming Corrupted Bread (by putting it into a quickslot, choosing that quickslot and click your right mouse button or by dragging this food over your character's model on the right side of the inventory) the maximum Health of your character will be reduced by 100 points, but a bonus of 20 points will be added to the maximum Stamina, and Corruption damage will be reduced - all of that for 7 minutes and 30 seconds.
Only one Corrupted Bread of a whole stack will automatically be consumed if you use a stack. If you should eat more Corrupted Breads (by right-clicking or dragging & dropping again) than one after another, the effects will merely set/prolonged to 7:30 minutes anew.
Mind that only common Bread (made from Wheat and ordinary Water) will unlock the recipe for Sandwiches. Baking any other types of Bread (like Corrupted Bread) will currently not unlock any new cooking recipes.
Different types of Bread can be made by using the basic Bread recipe and inserting Wheat together with other kinds of Liquids into a Cooking Station. Depending on the type of liquid, various variants of Bread will be the result:
- common Bread is made with 4x Wheat and 1x foraged ordinary Water from rivers, lakes or oceans, scooped up with an Obsidian Mining Cell or better
- Wholesome Bread is made with 4x Wheat and 1x foraged Mineral Water from the Stalactite layer, from oases in Canyons or made by purifying Corrupted Water, scooped up with a Diamond Mining Cell or better
- Bog Bread is made with 4x Wheat and 1x foraged Bog Water from Swamplands on the surface, scooped up with a Diamond Mining Cell or better
- Tar Bread is made with 4x Wheat and 1x foraged Tar from the Fossil layer or Stalactite layer underground, scooped up with an Iron Mining Cell or better
- Blazing Bread is made with 4x Wheat and 1x foraged Lava from the Lava layer or made by throwing Fire Bombs at Hardened Lava, scooped up with a Lumite Mining Cell (strongest Power Cell)
- Corrupted Bread is made with 4x Wheat and 1x foraged Corrupted Water from the Corruption layer or made by throwing Corrupt Bombs at ordinary blue Water, scooped up with an Lumite Mining Cell (strongest Power Cell)
- Gingerbread Loaf is made with 4x Wheat and 1x found Molasses obtained as a rare drop from either Arctic Mirus, Blizzard Chizzards or Rambeau, multiplied by letting it flow and then scooped up without needing any Power Cells
Wheat grows from Wheat Seeds which can be occasionally obtained while harvesting Tallgrass or Savannah Tallgrass. You have to plant these seeds under fitting conditions (on tilled soil with water nearby) to receive Wheat.
