Knowledge - Why did my cake fall in the middle?

cake help!

A lot of times the middle of a cake can fall and is due to a temperature change. If your cake is baking, and you open the door or move the pan too much the cake can 'separate from itself' and fall. Another reason can be over beating. Incorporating too much air in the batter can cause it to sink when baking. Lastly, make sure your cake rack is positioned in the center, unless your recipe specifies otherwise

    Also, high altitude here in NM causes cake to fall in the middle so, adjusting for high altitude baking may help with this issue.
