My cake doesnt cook from the center and sinks as well in the middle. Please advice. I tried it twice and same thing happens.

Tarla Dalal    Cake making is an art and the size of the tin is very imp, if you use a smaller one than the mentioned size it will create the problem you faced and also make sure the oven is pre-heated and baked at a correct temp and also bake in the middle rack.
