Cracked Wheat Savory Cake


With my Little one going all around the house, I am finding it difficult to prepare breakfast. So I prefer preparing some light breakfast, or some bread like Wheat Oats Banana Bread. Couple of weeks back, I tried Savory Rava Cake and had them for next day breakfast, and we both liked it. Wanted to do it again, and this time I used Cracked Wheat instead of Rava. Remembering cracked wheat idli!!

Cracked Wheat Savory Cake

Preparation Time : 10 min |  Cooking Time : 45  mins – 1 hour | Serves : 3

Recipe Category : Breakfast/snack


Dry Ingredients:

Cracked Wheat – 1 cup

Peas – 2 tbsp

Corn – 2 tbsp

Carrot – 2 , peeled and grated

Onion – 1, finely chopped

Salt – as needed

Baking soda – 1/2 tsp

Baking powder – 1/2 tsp

Wet Ingredients:

Unsweetened Yogurt/Curd – 1 cup

Water – 3 tbsp

Oil/Butter – 1 tbsp ( I used Olive oil)

Sesame seeds – 1 tbsp (optional)

Cooking Spray / Oil – to grease



  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the parchment paper in baking pan, and grease the baking tray with oil/cooking spray
  • In a bowl, add dry ingredients and mix well, and then add the wet ingredients

cracked wheat savory bread

  • Pour into baking tray and sprinkle sesame seeds


  • Bake for 35-40 minutes


My Notes:

  • You can also grind the cracked wheat for this
  • Instead of adding 1 cup of curd, you can also add 1/2 – 3/4 cup of yogurt and add 3/4 – 1/2 cup water accordingly
  • Red chilli powder/green chilli can be added to make it spicy
  • Same proportion works for Semollina/Rava cake as well

    God! this is a wonder recipe. It would work very well for my daughters lunch box. I made a savoury cake once with wheat flour though, the texture was dry – a big disappointment. Any pointers on that?

    wow–I could never pull this off for breakfast at my house (can imagine the revolt 😉 ), but I love that you can! Looks delish and I’d bet if I served it as a side dish at an evening meal, my family would at least try it. Love how healthy your dishes are, but still yummy.

    Tried it! Came out great! I love how healthy this is. This is like baked rava upma, with better texture. I followed most of your recipe except that instead of using cracked wheat I made it multi grain. I used equal amounts of oats,quinoa, cracked wheat and ragi and coarse ground them and added a little ginger and green chilies for the kick :).
