Whisk or stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg; set aside.
In large bowl, beat egg until foamy. Beat in milk, pumpkin and oil. Sprinkle first with flour mixture, then raisins. With wooden spoon, stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon into 12 lined or greased muffin cups, filling each no more than three-quarters full.
