DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 and grease muffin tins or line with papers(I find it's sometimes a good idea to spray these too, and to get the outside of the tins as well, so the tops don't stick).
  • Mix together shortening and sugar in a large bowl, then stir in orange zest.
  • In another bowl, beat egg well and stir in buttermilk. Add a small squeeze of orange juice right from the orange too, if you'd like.
  • Stir baking powder, baking soda, salt and flour together in another bowl.
  • Put dry ingredients into the sugar/shortening mix, and stir a few times(it will be *very* lumpy, lots of flour left, but don't worry).
  • Stir in buttermilk/egg mixture til everything is just combined, still some lumps left.
  • Fold in walnuts and raisins.
  • Pour about 1/4-1/3 cup batter into muffin tins. There should be more than you'd usually fill (the normal 2/3 way up) them, so that they almost spill out oover the top of the tin.
  • Bake about 25-30 minutes, test with a toothpick to make sure they're all cooked inside.
  • Enjoy!
