When making this recipe use the best honey you can get, I was given this recipe by my aunt, which I will treasure. As these are very popular in Terceira island ,which is in the acores. They are very dense and delicious. Enjoy.

I made these for my daughter's class presentation on Portugal (cupcakes are more portable than custard tartlets!) and they smell divine! I used buckwheat honey to give it a strong honey flavor. My 4th grader was cracking eggs forever to make 3 dozen :-)
Unfortunately I'm on a strict diet so I can't enjoy them myself but they look and smell delicious!
