Can anyone help me with my sad flat cake? Advice?

I'm not a baker and will never ever claim to be, but tonight I tried to make a red velvet cake, only it turned out brown, flat and discus. I basically didn't have any ingredients for a red velvet so I just kind of winged it so I guess I really didn't know what I was making.

1 cup non-fat yogurt
1 cup skim milk
1/2 c oil
2 eggs
1/4 c light brown sugar and 2 packets of white sugar probably from Starbucks (it's all I had!!)
1 T vanilla extract
1 T almond extract
10 drops red food coloring

2 cup sifted AP flour
2 T cocoa powder
1 T baking soda
1 T baking powder
1 tsp salt

Oven at 350

When I checked it after 1/2 an hour, it had risen and was really nice and puffy but about 15 minutes later when I took it out of the oven, it totally deflated right in front of me. :(

lol It's really flat, almost like a fruit tart right now, about 1/4 of the height that it should be. .
