2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup chopped nuts
1 egg
1 cup molasses
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup melted butter


Preheat oven to 350. Butter muffin tins. Combine sugar, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, salt, nutmeg and nuts
in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix egg, molasses, buttermilk and melted butter, and add to the dry ingredients. Stir until just blended.
Spoon into muffin tins and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Test with a toothpick: muffins are done when it comes out clean.
