How to make it

  • Grease muffin pans, this recipe will make between 12-15 muffins (the normal size muffin pans)
  • Preheat that oven at 400 degrees if you haven't done so already.
  • Sift flour, measure, add baking powder, salt and sift again. Set aside.
  • If you are using pre-sifted flour, then measure once, add other dry ingredients and sift once with dry ingredients all together.
  • Cream shortening, adding sugar slowly, mix until light and fluffy.
  • Add egg and beat, then add milk, orange juice and extract and beat one minute.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients (flour, etc.) just until the ingredients come together - Do not over beat! Literally takes maybe 2 minutes on slow with an electric mixer - ok to have some lumps - they will bake out, I promise.
  • Fill greased muffin pans two-thirds full, sprinkle tops with a little sugar if you wish.
  • Place on middle rack in preheated oven and allow to bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Enjoy! - Image is from but recipe is my Grandma Nelle's.
