I would give either nonfat yoghurt  a try, or a combination of skim milk and
ff youghurt mixed together well.  Another idea is adding skim milk powder to
the milk to bulk it up in texture.

In some recipes it doesn't seem to be a problem to sub using skim milk, but
the yoghurt or milk powder may be needed here to keep the cake firm.  What
about vanilla or cappucino  flavoured yo'?  :-)

Good luck!
