I have been using the best recipe from Hershey's for years. We recently moved from Kansas City to Castle Rock, CO. My long-time, go-to cake recipe was an epic failure at the higher altitude. I found this one adapted for me. Thank you so much!
I live in Aurora, Colorado (5,471 ft above see level) and I've had plenty of fails trying to bake in this altitude. I wanted to make cupcakes and came across this recipe. It is delicious and definitely works in high altitude. This recipe makes about 28 cupcakes. The only change I made was decreasing both the baking powder and baking soda to just 1 teaspoon each instead of the called for 1 teaspoon and 1/4. I baked them for 14 minutes at 375 degrees and these turned out perfect. This will be my go to recipe for chocolate cake.
This is legit a no fail cake recipe for high altitude. It was so deliciously moist and soft. Loved it!
