At higher altitudes, cakes are more sensitive to slight changes; therefore, it is important to carefully follow the directions given for each recipe. Be sure that measurements are exact and especially note the addition or subtraction of amounts by tablespoons from cups of flour or liquid. Always use measuring spoons or cups when definite amounts of ingredients are specified.When measuring flour and baking powder, do not pack them, but spoon lightly and level off. Always sift flour before measuring. Brown sugar and shortening should be packed into the cup or spoon to give accurate measurements. Shortening should be at room temperature for best results.This recipe is mainly for 5000 to 7500 feet in elevation. For higher elevations, make these adjustments:Plain Chiffon: Reduce baking powder to l tsp.Orange Chiffon: Reduce baking powder to 3/4 tsp.Lemon and Pineapple Chiffons: Same as 5,000 ft.
