5.0 étoiles sur 5Finally, help for baking at high altitude5 octobre 2003

I love this book - it has adjustments for unadjusted receipes and over 200 recipes for 3,500 to 10,000 feet. You have to try the mocha chip cookies - yum!

I did find this book helpful for bread baking tips, but as far as teaching a thing or two about how to adjust recipes for high altitude, I haven't really found what I need. It talks about some differences in baking at high altitude and sea level, but doesn't show you how to adjust other recipes to make up for the differences. Maybe I just can't find it? I also made cupcakes from this book and cupcakes from a non-high-altitude cookbook and the ones from this book were dense, hard and icky. I live at over 5,000 feet and thought these recipes would work better here than average recipes.

Me and my wife moved to Colorado from sea level, and were big bakers using Betty Crocker baking books. We have tried many of the recipes in this book and have yet to come across one that tastes even halfway decent. We live at 9100 feet, and there are many recipes in the book that don't require any further adjustments for higher altitudes (so they say), and we've tried a few of the cake and cookie recipes, but none of them worked, the cakes flopped,and the cookies always flattened out completely. It was hit or miss with this book, and that's aside from the awful taste of the recipes. They claim that all the recipes will work to 6500 ft elevation, and higher altitudes require further changes, but even making the changes they have in the book under the recipe's, a lot of the recipes failed.
Save your money and get any baking book and make adjustments for high altitude, using any of the adjustments you can readily find on-line for your altitude.
We were very disappointed in this cookbook.

I've had this book now for about 3 years, and haven't made a recipe that did not come out. Pancakes, breads, cupcakes, everything I've used in this book has come out great. I say this is my favorite high altitude baking book, but it's actually the only one I have. I've found I don't need another. This is a great starting point for high altitude baking, and I've been able to use the ideas here to adjust other recipes I loved when living at (much) lower altitudes. We currently live at slightly over 7000 ft.
