About this recipe: An authentic and easy recipe for Portuguese cupcakes. They are absolutely delicious, especially warm out of the oven. Try serving them with fresh fruit or coconut on top.
my ones were horrible and burnt and still not cooked in the middle! - 03 Feb 2013
These are absolutely delicious!! I lived in Portugal for a little over a year and ate them in about 1000 different cafes, and this recipe is so authentic! Just FYI, they are supposed to fall a bit in the middle - that is what makes them so perfect for different toppings. They are best on the day made, so you probably want to avoid making them in advance for anything. - 25 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I just can't understand the negative reviews for these. I used a nonstick muffin pan to make them and had no problems with sticking. I also tried almond extract instead of vanilla. I can't stop eating them...delicious!! - 06 May 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
