  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin pan or line with paper baking cups.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Mix in the honey, eggs, buttermilk and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the batter just until blended. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, dividing evenly.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan set over a wire rack. When cool, arrange the cupcakes on a serving platter.
  4. Whip the heavy cream in a chilled bowl using an electric mixer until stiff enough to hold a peak. Sweeten with confectioners' sugar if desired. Spoon on top of cupcakes and top each one with sliced strawberries right before serving.

I make these with whole wheat flour, a little extra milk, and some cinnamon and orange. They have a fine, dense crumb and a perfect "grown-up cupcake" flavor. I like them with a cream cheese frosting.

VERY good! Came out great. I made them in a mini muffin tin and had 42 mini cupcakes! I changed the frosting slightly by adding a package of cream cheese to make it more sturdy/thicker (as per the whipped frosting recipes on here). Added tiny bits of strawberries straight to the "frosting" and they came out fantastic! You can taste the honey in these for sure! Mine ended up like mini strawberry shortcakes.

Very good! They are a more dense cake than most recipes, but the light frosting balances it well. I added a few more tablespoons of honey because my husband is such a big honey fan! This recipe works great if you use peaches as well.

These were a total hit at my niece's first birthday. I used a whipped cream cream cheese froasting that complemented them perfectly. They had a perfect honey flavor! Yum!

These were a hit! I added roughly an extra 1/6 cup of honey. Used the whipped cream recipe provided. Topped the cupcakes with strawberries and blueberries. Will definitely make these again.

Yum! Made this cake for a recent party and everyone loved it! The cake is a little denser than most, but the honey flavor is light and not too sweet, which my husband loved! Also, made this with the "Real Strawberry Frosting" by Candice, which is also great! I used one deep 9 inch baking pan instead of cupcakes and it took about 30 minutes to bake. (Normally would probably have to use 2 standard 9 inch baking pans.)
