  3. Beat Almond Paste, 1/4 cup sugar and cocoa until combined. Add eggs and yolk. Mix until incorporated and beat on high speed for 10 minutes.
  4. On a low speed; slowly pour melted chocolate and liqueur into Almond Paste mixture until combined. Gently fold in flour until just mixed. Spoon* 1/2 cup of batter into each cup.
  5. Bake for 9-10 minutes. If using six ounce custard cups bake less time. Check at 8-9 minutes. Cake top and sides should be set but center soft.
  6. Place tray on wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Run a thin knife around inside edge of cup and tip upside down on plate. Gently remove cup. Serve with raspberries, raspberry sauce or whipped cream.
