Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small saucepan, simmer raisins and rum until rum is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Cut a very thin slice off the bottom of each orange so they will stand without rolling. Cut a 3/4-inch thick slice off the top of each, removing any flesh from tops and reserve. With a sharp knife and spoon, remove most of the orange fruit leaving the empty shell.
  3. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, and then add vanilla and orange zest. Alternately add flour mixture and buttermilk to batter, starting and ending with the flour mixture. Fold in raisins.
  4. Fill orange shells two-thirds full with batter and put tops in place. Wrap oranges in foil and arrange on the grill. Cover and bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove foil from oranges and cool on racks at least 15 minutes. Pull off any overflowed batter. Serve.
