Middle rack exactly - halfway between the two elements. If you cannot place any two cakes together on this rack [without touching each other or the sides] then you will have to

either bake them one-at-a-time.

Or if there is more than two, you have to bake them, one-up one-down, rotating them between the two racks half-way through the baking process.

It must be pointed out that some cakes do not like
1. the oven door being opened ..
2. being moved during baking ..

auzzi is right. All electric ovens have 2 elements (at least as I understand it); so rotating the 2 cakes about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way through the baking is important.
