1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, divided
1/2 cup nutlike cereal nuggets (such as Grape-Nuts)
2 tsp. instant espresso granules
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (about 7 3/4 ounces)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup vanilla fat-free yogurt (about 8 ounces)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup egg substitute
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
2 tsp. cooled brewed coffee
1. Preheat oven to 350°
2. Combine 1/2 cup granulated sugar, cereal, espresso granules, and cinnamon in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Set aside.
3. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, remaining 1 cup granulated sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add yogurt, butter, and egg substitute; beat with an electric mixer on low speed 1 minute or until combined. Spread half of batter into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with cereal mixture; top with remaining half of batter. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean; cool in pan.
4. Combine powdered sugar and coffee in a small bowl; spread glaze evenly over top of cake. Cut into 12 pieces.
