I think you have over beat the butter and the eggs. Over beaten batter will yield crumbly cake. Try to add more liquid ( it can be egg or cream) and a few table spoons of milk power into batter, it will overcome the dryness problem.

The most likely explanation for why the cakes crumble and fall apart when removing them from the pans is that they are still too warm when you try to turn them out. Regardless of what recipe you use, the rule for baking cakes is that they must cool COMPLETELY in the pans before attempting to remove them. This could take several hours, so be patient and wait! If a cake is still even slightly warm when removing it from the pan, it can crumble.

One other technique I always use: I line the bottom of the cake pans with parchment paper. I buy Reynolds brand parchment paper which can be found at most grocery stores, and I trace the cake pan onto the parchment, then cut it out to fit inside the pan. Then I spray the pan with cooking spray, Baker’s Joy or PAM baking spray. Once the cake is baked and fully cooled, I run a knife around the outside edge of the cake pan before I invert the cake onto a cake circle or plate. The combination of these techniques can help make it easier to remove the cakes from the pans; however, it will not stop cakes from falling apart.
