Do you have an angel food cake recipe that would work at 9,500 feet altitude?

The High Altitude Baking Book does have an angel food cake recipe. The Guide to High Altitude Baking is available from Colorado State University Extension and local book stores.

The adjustment in the book recommended for altitudes above 8,500 feet is to increase flour from 1 cup plus 1 Tbsp. to 1 and 1/4 cup; to decrease sugar from 1 and 1/2 cup to 1 and 1/4 cup; and to raise the oven temperature to 400 degrees.
