    Just tried this recipe yesterday and it's definitely a keeper! I decreased the sugar in the topping by about 2 tbsp. and decreased the sugar in the batter by 1/4 cup. I didn't want to use the icing so I only sprinkled 2/3 of the cereal mix in between the batter layers and used the final 1/3 as a topping. Only had plain yogurt on hand, so I added 1 tsp of vanilla extract to the mix.

    Most of the people in the office loved it. I think that you have to like coffee flavored items to be in love with this. The grape nuts give a great crunch to the middle. I didn't use the coffee in the glaze, I just used water and it was perfect. will make again, so simple

    made these for a friend with ciliac's disease, so i substituted rice flour for the all purpose flour and the result was simply delicious. now, i'm looking forward to making these the original way :)

    We loved this coffee cake because we love coffee. Super easy, too. The yogurt makes it rich & creamy. I did use half the butter & half the sugar & no icing & it is still delicious. I cooked it for about 35 min. and it was completely cooked with a little crunch on top. Love the grape nuts in it. Will def. make again!
