In a large mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin, oil, sugar, molasses, vanilla and eggs until well blended. Combine flour, walnuts, and the remaining dry ingredients in another bowl and mix until well blended. Stir flour into the pumpkin mixture until well incorporated. Divide batter evenly in the tins. Sprinkle streusel topping over each one. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until toothpick, inserted in the center, comes out clean.
