ALTITUDE ADJUSTMENT GUIDE FOR BAKING


These are general estimates. Your location, humidity, oven and recipe will make a difference and in most cases we suggest you start with low exchanges and if they don't work then nudge the next effort up a notch. These general figures, however, usually work with bread. Pies and cakes may take a bit more testing.
