Cooking at High Altitudes
If you live in the mountains, you probably wish there were a
foolproof way to adapt recipes to high-altitude conditions.
Unfortunately, there's no magic formula, but here are a few tips
to minimize the guesswork.
Most ingredients in baked goods are affected by low air pressure
at high altitudes. For example, angel cakes, which depend on beaten
egg whites for leavening, overexpand if whites are beaten according
to sea level directions. For best results, beat whites to soft
rather than stiff peaks.
For cakes that are leavened with baking powder or soda, you will
need to adjust the liquid and sugar amounts as well as the leavening.
Use the chart below as a guide, and experiment to discover what
works best in your area.

Sugar: Decrease O to 1 O to 2 1 to 3

Liquids boil at lower temperatures at high altitudes than at sea
level so foods cooked in liquid take longer to cook. Increase
cooking time rather than the heat; foods may scorch easily.
Fried foods lose moisture more quickly in high-altitude areas. To
compensate, lower the temperature of the fat 3 degrees Fahrenheit
for each 1,000 feet above sea level.
Candies, frostings, and jellies become more concentrated at high
altitudes because of rapid evaporation. To use a candy thermometer,
decrease the temperature 2 degrees Fahrenheit for each 1,000 feet
above sea level.
