Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C).

In large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk milk with yogurt until blended; add to flour mixture along with eggs, oil, vanilla extract and coffee mixture; beat at medium speed for 2 min. Pour into prepared pan.

Bake for 40 to 45 min or until top springs back when lightly touched. Let cool in pan on rack for 20 min. Remove from pan; and cool completely on rack.

Chocolate icing:
In small saucepan, mix sugar with cocoa; whisk in milk until smooth. Over medium heat, bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Continue stirring and cook for 2 min. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla extract. Let cool for 2 hours (icing thickens upon cooling). Spread over top of cake.
