Other than not coming out of the pan well, how did it taste? Was it dry and crumbly in your mouth? It may have just needed to line your pan with parchment (always).

Could the cake have been too dry or was the oven too hot, crumbly sounds like a dry cake.

You might want to check your oven temperature, it might be baking hotter than you think. I have to bake on 325, my cakes come out perfect.
