A blend of whole-grain flavors and warm spices are the basis of this muffin. The nut topping, made with molasses and walnuts, is fashioned after the wet walnut topping of the old soda fountain days. Blending softened butter into the dry ingredients and then mixing the batter for a relatively long time gives these muffins their fine, tender crumb. Because they are quite soft, the muffins can be tricky to get out of the pan—using paper liners in the cups will solve this problem.
