It depends on what it is you are baking. We have a brochure I would be happy to mail to you if you send me your address.


Generally, for cakes you can reduce baking powder 1/8 tsp for each in the recipe; reduce sugar up to 1T for each cup & increase liquid 1-2T for each cup.

Each recipe is a bit different, make sure you make notations to what changes & the results for future reference.

You can call my office if you want me to mail you the brochure
