Measuring is important in cooking and baking. The best of chefs often season without measuring and create new dishes without a recipe, but they learned to cook by following the measurements in recipes.
Measuring is especially important when baking. Because recipes like breads, dough, batter and the like are basically chemistry, small variations in the amount of oil, butter, baking powder or other ingredient can ruin a recipe.
Measuring is one of the single most important techniques in cooking healthy. This is due to the fact that by using the correct amount of ingredients, you know exactly how much fat and calories you are eating.

|1 large||egg yolk|
|1 tsp||canola oil|
|1/2 cup||Z-Sweet stevia or Splenda|
|1/2 cup||canned pumpkin|
|1/2 cup||unsweetened applesauce|
|1/2 tsp||pure vanilla extract|
|3 large||egg whites|
|1 1/4 cup||all purpose flour|
|3/4 cup||whole wheat flour|
|2 tsp||baking powder|
|1/2 tsp||baking soda|
|1 tsp||ground cinnamon|
|2 tsp||ground ginger|
|1/4 cup||wheat germ|
|1/2 cup||low-fat buttermilk|
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 1 1/2 quart glass Pyrex oblong loaf pan with foil (non-stick foil works best).
Whisk the egg yolk until smooth. Add the canola oil and whisk together until smooth. Add the Z-Sweet or Splenda®, applesauce, pumpkin and vanilla extract and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the molasses.
In separate bowl whisk the egg whites until they begin to be very frothy and white. Do not beat into stiff peaks (the egg whites should about triple in volume).
Place the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and wheat germ in a sifter and sift into the mixing bowl.
Gently fold the creamed mixture together with the flour mixture. Add buttermilk and fold until smooth. As soon as the mixture is well blended add the frothed egg whites and fold together until smooth.
Pour the batter into the lined Pyrex dish. Place the loaf pan in the preheated oven. Bake for 50 minutes.
