My cake get Cracked on top and burned underneath

Dear all,

I am new at Chow. Please take my Greetings .

I have one question :

When I make cake ,everytime it gets cracked on the top , gets burned the underneath also gets dark browned in both side while the inside remains raw. I use normal recipe only for regular evening table as cake is my son's favourite. I use Soyabin Oil instead of Butter ( since butter is expensive) , eggs , milk,flour, sugar and baking powder, give 180*C or F , keep 45 minutes. It tests good though I face the same problem everytime; It gets too dark brown or burn while the inside remains uncooked and gummy. I have an old model NOVA Convection Oven .

Your any kind of advice on my above problem will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your kind reply .
