Coat 6 6-oz. custard cups with non-stick spray. In quart saucepan, melt chocolate, butter and sugar over low heat, stirring until melted and blended. Remove from heat and pour into large mixing bowl. Mix flour, cocoa powder and baking powder together and add to chocolate mixture. Mix with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, and blend well. Pour into custard C., filling each about 2/3 full. Cover C. with plastic wrap and freeze about 2 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place frozen custard cups, with plastic wrap removed, on cookie sheet. Bake 15-18 minutes. While cakes are baking, whip cream and vanilla until soft peaks form. Spoon cream onto small dessert plates. Spoon raspberry puree in a circle around outer edge of cream. Drag a toothpick through circle to make designs. Remove cakes from oven and cool slightly. Then invert onto prepared dessert plates.

Note: Make sure to invert cakes while they're still warm. The fudge "lava" will ooze out of the volcano-shaped cakes.
