Bakeries occupy an important position in human nutrition locally and globally. The result of gap between production and consumption for wheat, the government are imported wheat from different countries. Millets are widely grown in the semiarid tropics of Africa and Asia.

In this study replacement wheat flour (72% ext.) with pearl millet flour for manufacture the blends of cake. (10% pearl millet flour + 90% wheat flour, 20% pearl millet flour + 80% wheat flour, 30% pearl millet flour + 70% wheat flour and 100% pearl millet flour). The chemical composition, rheological properties, textures, staling, microbiological examination and sensory properties of produced cake and during the storage period of 8 days at 25 ± 1°C were done. The results showed that a clear and noticeable improvement of all characteristics of produced cake, which was the increase of ash, protein, fiber, fat and carbohydrate compared to the control sample.
