The most common mistake is over-mixing. Beat the fat and sugars until very light and fluffy and then mix in the dry ingredients by hand. Mix only until blended. I bet that solves your problem.

This article has very good information that should also give some insight.

How old is your baking powder? If it's more than 6 months old, you should replace it.

If you are using margarine, they could have reformulated it. Or Crisco, the same thing.
