Whisk dry ingredients in a bowl.
Combine wet ingredients in a separate, larger bowl. Mix until smooth.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix until just combined being careful not to over mix.
Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 20-30 minutes. The cake is done when tester comes out clean. While the cake is baking prepare frosting.
Combine butter, brown sugar, cream or milk, and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 7-10 minutes. Mixture should still be warm.
Add vanilla, crushed coffee granules, and cinnamon to mixture. Stir to combine.
Using a mixer or hand beaters, slowly beat in powdered sugar. Increase speed until thoroughly combined and smooth. Thin as needed with extra cream or milk.
While both the cake and frosting are still warm, but not hot, pour frosting directly onto cake. Spread from edge to edge. It will be a thin layer but will cover completely.
For optimal moistness refrigerate overnight.
