Tyroleon Hard Cake

This was one of my favorite Christmas treats as I was growing up... Not sure what struck me about it, I mean, I am kind of a chocolate girl but I remember loving every time that my mom made it! I knew that I had made it before and could not find the recipe anywhere... Since my mom was at work I racked my brain to try and remember where I might have the recipe... Found it in a cookbook that my class made when I was in 2nd grade! So, that's how long I have LOVED this recipe! :)

Tyroleon Hard Cake

2 teaspoon baking powder
