Vegan cupcake recipe by Bethenny Frankel of The Real Houswives of New York City

Bethenny Frankel, chef and star of The Real Housewives of New York City

Bethenny Frankel of reality show The Real Housewives of New York City has a new cookbook out (written with Eve Adamson) called Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting and...there's a cupcake recipe in it! Now, whether these cupcakes will actually make you "thin," I don't know, but since they're vegan there's no butter, so that's got to be a step in the right direction. (And trust me, I'm trying to lose about 20 pounds, yet am faced with cupcakes everywhere I go!)

sounds like a dry cupcake to me, but I would have to try it.

An eighth of a cup?? How much is that exactly? I have a 1/4 cup measure...

Eve123 an 1/8 of a cup would be 1/2 of 1/4. Please go back to school.

Recipe does not sound appealing.
