It shrunk in the middle and is a bit tough.

over beaten ?
or lack of raising agent ?

Follow the directions from the Edmonds cook book to the letter.
Once the mixture is in the pan, drop the pan 6 or 7 times onto the bench from roughly 30 to 60cm height.

The sudden knock lets any trapped air bubbles in the mixture to escape.

I've used this method for years, and have won awards for my sponges as a result.
