Recipe Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
1 large egg
1/4 cup milk
2 oranges, finely chopped
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup granulated sugar

Cooking Directions:

  1. Sift together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, allspice, and nutmeg. Cut in shortening until the mixture is crumbly. Add egg and milk; mix just until moistened. The batter will be thick. Fold in peeled, chopped oranges. Spoon into greased muffin tins about 3/4 full.

  3. In a small saucepan over low heat melt butter. In a small bowl combine 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon.
  4. Dip muffins into butter and sprinkle with sugar/cinnamon mixture.
