one of the reasons cakes sink in the middle is because it was not fully cooked before it was removed from oven or deflation from overmixing. another reason could be that something wrong with the leavener (too much of it). sometimes the oven is too hot. if you have a oven thermometer check that you have the correct temperature. Hope this helps thumbs_up.gif
