Cooking Time: 60 Minutes
Bread will keep for 72 - 96 hours in a plastic bag. Reheat gently. This will freeze fairly well if sealed tightly in a plastic bag.
This recipe can be multiplied by two but must be cooked in two separate loaf pans.
Line a 1 1/2 quart glass Pyrex oblong loaf pan with foil.
Place the egg yolk in a large mixing bowl and whisk until smooth.
Add the sweetener of your choice, applesauce, pumpkin, vanilla extract and whisk until smooth.
Add the molasses. Whisk until smooth.
Add the melted butter and buttermilk. Whisk until smooth.
In separate bowl whisk the egg whites until they form 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.
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.
