  • 2 cups of sifted flour
  • 1/4 cup of canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder (leveled)
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • ½ cups of raisins
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cups of milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  1. Grease your cookie sheet or other baking pan and preheat your oven to 375-degrees.

  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, 1/3 cup of the sugar, and nutmeg in a mixing bowl.

  3. Stir in the egg, oil, and vanilla next.

  4. Add the raisins last and incorporate into the dough mixture.

  5. Roll the dough into balls. If the dough is sticky, here is a secret trick. Grease your hands with a little oil helps the dough from sticking. You can make these as big or small as you want before sprinkling or rolling them in the cinnamon-orange sugar.

  6. Bake at a 375-degrees for about 12-15 minutes, depending on how your oven is regulated. Test with a toothpick, cake tester or slender knife or just inspect the bottom to see if it is lightly browned.
