should the baking tin have a hole in the middle?

You mean a Bundt/tube pan or a ring mold? Yes you can use that as well if you like. The cake looks prettier. However if you do not have that you can use a regular round cake tin as well. Make sure to grease the pan very well so that you can unmold the cake.
