COFFEE LOVER'S COFFEE CAKE

1/3 cup sugar
4 1/2 tsp instant coffee granules
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

BATTER:

3 tbsp butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup plain yogurt
2 tbsp chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, combine the sugar, coffee granules, and cinnamon; set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the flour mixture, alternately with the yogurt, to the egg mixture. Beat mixture just until combined.

Spray a 9-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spread half the batter evenly in bottom of the pan. Sprinkle half of the reserved sugar mixture over the batter. Repeat with the remaining batter, then the remaining sugar mixture. Using a butter knife, cut through the batter to swirl. Sprinkle nuts over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes on a wire rack.
