Bigger Cakes

I have a large family and find that the recipes for the average cake are just too small so I have been using 24cm cake tins for my sponges and have doubled up the quantities of ingredients...i.e. 12oz flour etc. BUT I am finding that they are sinking in the middle (even though I do not open the oven door) Please can anyone help with some useful advice...also do you have to cook the cakes for longer just because they are bigger?? Thanks for your help.

Yes, you have to cook them for longer, but then you come up against the problem that the outside is cooked before the middle is. Thus, if the outside is done the inside isn't, and it will sink!

Why not make three layers instead of two? Or two cakes instead of one?
