  • Stir flour with baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in centre, and pour in warm raisin mixture; stir just until combined. Stir in nuts until evenly mixed. Spoon batter into greased muffin cups.

  • Bake in center of oven at 350 degrees F (190 degrees C) until golden, about 15 to 17 minutes. Remove from oven, and immediately pour about 1 teaspoon syrup over each muffin. Cool muffins in pan for 10 minutes, then remove to a rack. Serve warm.
