Maple Walnut Muffins Recipe

Ah, Maple and Walnut. A classic combination. I do not know who decided these two things go well together, but kudos to that person, or persons. I’m sure there are other nut/maple combos that work as a substitute so go to town and let us know what you think. This recipe comes from a favourite book of muffin recipes called: Magnificent Muffins Cookbook, Printed back in 1984 and published by Magnificent Cookbooks Publishing, Inc.
