High Altitude (5000 ft) Vanilla Bean Cake by: Lisa Herrera
After many trials and errors, I have finally found a vanilla cake that works for me here in the Denver area at 5280 feet elevation. I adapted Liz Marek's vanilla cake, and after finding my perfect formula, I have a tried and true friend for life. The mixing process is a little tricky, but it is similar to Kara's perfect white cake. If you like a tall cake, you will need to double this recipe and your cooking time will be closer to 50-60 minutes. Don't be discouraged if it doesn't turn out the first time. Baking in this altitude can be tricky, and has many variables. So tweak things here and there if you need to. Now bake away!
