They really aren't a cupcake but more of a custard tart which is why they don't get a leavening ingredient. I think it is Americans who have decided to call them a "cupcake"

Although not custard, you are right that are more of a tart then a cupcake, the author named it cupcakes but I will change that to tarts so everyone knows what to expect.

Sweet coconut or unsweetened

Maria, use to taste, I personally like to use sweet, but the end result will be very sweet, so if you don't want it as sweet, use unsweetened.

Why do these recipes not call for baking soda, or powder? I made the almond cupcakes and they were terrible. Just curious.

Sorry to hear that Kathy, the author does not mention baking powder or baking soda.
