Enriching cereal-containing functional foods in the changing food industry is highly attractive. Examining the use of nutrient-rich melon seed powder (MSP), a waste, in bakery products is valuable in sustainability. Within the scope of the study, the use of MSP as an alternative raw material to whole wheat flour (WWF) in cupcake formulation was investigated. Four formulations containing varying proportions of MSP (0%, 10%, 20%, 30%) were evaluated. Depending on the increase of MSP substitution, an increase was observed in the protein, fat and total ash ratios of the cupcakes. The addition of MSP to the product caused browning in the colour of the cupcakes and an increase in hardness values while causing a decrease in their specific volumes. According to the sensory analysis results, while the control cake was the most liked group, it was determined that MSP addition could be used up to 20% in terms of general acceptability and odour in cake production.
