Why does my cake rise higher in the middle?

I'm 72 years old and every cake I have baked in my life is always a little highter in the center. It has never made any difference to me. The same goes for everybody that I have ever known. Of course none of us are professional bakers, but the way I look at is if the texture is good and the cake tastes good why worry about it.
