This cake has a occasionally done a souffle trick. It collapses in the middle. I have not figured how to stop it or to fix it. I am not sure if you need to cook it longer or what. The problem is that you don't know if it will fall until you start to cool it. You can try turning the oven off and letting cool in the oven to prevent it from falling
