According to question: click here please
So since i'm doing 5 cakes using whole eggs and 5 cakes using egg whites. Would I compare the density of the whole egg cake with the density of the egg white cake and then from comparing both densities I would find which one is fluffier right?

Question Date: 2012-11-13
Answer 1:

If my understanding of what fluffiness is (namely, how much weight it takes up in your mouth) is correct, then yes, you compare the densities of the two cakes.

Now, this does not explain how much weight it will take up in your stomach. This is because different substances absorb different amounts of water, enzymes, etc. I can't help you there!
