Are there any High Alitudue adjestments?

I do not have all day to read every single message here over 400 to see if anyone addressed baking this at higher altitude. I am just 4000' Can anyone please help me?. So anxious to try this. And will try roasted Rhubarb on it as i have a last of the season picking in the garden ready to roast. Thank you so much.

Typically recipes say 'above 4000 ft' is considered 'high altitude.' With that said,I live at 6035 ft. I have to reduce the sugar (about 1 TBSP PER CUP) * sugar turns to a liquid when heated,then evaporates. Reduce any rising agent 1/8-1/4 tsp. * lack of air pressure makes thing rise faster. Add 1-2 TBSP of flour which strengthens the batter. Set the oven about 25 degrees hotter than recipe indicates for preheating. Then lower the temp to what the recipe says when you bake it.

Miss_Karen. Thank you. Did you make this cake using your adjustments for your 6000'+ ??
I do know how to typically adjust using U of C table..BUT it is always advantages to chat with an actual person who did make the recipes and what they did and the result. I do this when asked all the time. Thanks again.. And if you are in Colorado..SNOW predicted today I am reading. It was in Northern MT on Sunday., a friend shared. Holy Moly this is early. :)
