‘Paul’s moist chocolate cake’ My feed back

‘Hi there, I love this chocolate cake recipe but I always have a problem of sinking in the middle. Some people have suggested that the sugar content is too high and that is what makes the cake sink and make the top look like elephant skin. So the last time I baked, instead of using 600gm of sugar I reduced it to 450gms. The cake turned out perfect, no crusty top and no sinking.
