Walnut Muffins

I found this recipe for English Walnut Muffins printed in The Daily Times on December 3, 1920.  It looked short and easy to make.  It only took a few minutes to mix up and about 20 to bake.  These were a nice change from the sweet muffins I’ve been used to.  There isn’t much sugar, so I could see it pairing nicely with dinner.  We ate them as a snack with a little butter on them.  They are delicious!
