  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Sift flour, cocoa, and 1/4 cup of the white sugar together. Beat egg whites with cream of tartar and salt until soft peaks form, gradually add 1/2 cup sugar beating until stiff and shiny, add vanilla.

Invert pan and cool completely. Remove cake and cut it into 3 layers. Spread almond filling between the layers and dust top with sifted confectioners' sugar. Makes about 10 servings. To Make Almond Filling: Combine the remaining 1/4 cup white sugar, cornstarch and salt in a saucepan. Mix the beaten eggs and milk together and stir them into the sugar mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thick and bubbling. Cook for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add the almond liqueur and stir well. Cover the surface of the fill in with plastic wrap and chill completely before using.
