orange-oatmeal-raisin muffins

I think these are our very favourite muffins around here.  They’re moist and delicious, and this recipe has never failed me.

  • 1 c. Quick Oats
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (from the jug in your fridge – not fresh squeezed, although that might work too… I’m not sure)
  • 1/2 cup boiling water

Mix these 3 ingredients above in a small bowl, and let sit 15 minutes

  • 1/2  cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

In medium size bowl, cream butter and sugars.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.  (I do it all with a wooden spoon).  Add raisins and dump in oatmeal mixture.  Stir together.

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and gently stir into the butter/sugar/oatmeal batter. (do not over stir).

Pour into muffin tin (I use paper liners, but I guess if you don’t you’d want to grease your muffin tin).

Bake 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Oven temps may vary, but they’re done when you stick a knife in, and the knife comes out clean.

Enjoy!   (makes 12 muffins)
