Cakes wont rise

Can anyone shed some light on why my scratch cakes won't rise.
I have tried creaming at lowest spead,stirring in the dry ingredients., not greasing the sides of the pan so the cake can "walk up" and rise.
Still my cakes never rise higher than the amount of batter I put in the pan.
My oven is calibrated. I am at a loss.
any ideas
Thank you
