Sounds like part of your heating element is not heating correctly and so you are not getting an even cooking temp. Do check your oven with a level to make sure but I'm thinking your cakes are baking unevenly.

Did you turn the cake 1/2 way through baking? The fan could have been blowing the batter enough to have caused it to be not level if it wasn't rotated during baking.

Sometimes when I don't move my batter around in the pan it will bake like that. I can see if the batter has more on one side of the pan.

the oven is level, but are the racks level? if it continues, just rotate them during cooking.
